Klingon Huck

Recently on Twitter, Neil Gaiman commented on the “sanitized Huck Finn” flap by saying:

People asking about http://wapo.st/eRHo6W. It’s public domain, so you can make Huck a Klingon if you want, but it’s not Mark Twain’s book.
@neilhimself

Which he then decided to illustrate by saying:

What’s the use you learnin’ to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right & ain’t no trouble to do wrong, & tomorrow we die! #KlingonHuck
@neilhimself

Which led to all of this:

@neilhimself Revenge is a dish best served with a big ol’ piece of Aunt Polly’s blueberry pie. #KlingonHuck
@salamanderjbu

@neilhimself Aunt Sally says she’s gonna adopt and sivilize me so I reckon I’ll light out to the Neutral Zone. #KlingonHuck
@MichaelClear

@neilhimself Painting this fence is…illogical. #VulcanTom
@muskrat_john

@neilhimself They would rather be outlaws a year in The Neutral Zone than President of the Federation forever. #KlingonHuck #VulcanTom

@neilhimself Wouldn’t it be dishonorable to attend your own funeral? #KlingonHuck
@JohnMCoons

@neilhimself Next day he was drunk on prune juice (a warrior’s drink), and he went to Judge Thatcher’s and bullyragged him #KlingonHuck
@dansimmo1

@neilhimself These liars warn’t no kings nor dukes, at all, but just low-down humbugs and Ferengis. #KlingonHuck

And wound up with this:

@realjohngreen Inspired by @neilhimself, I turned a paragraph of Huckleberry Finn into a tale of Klingon oppression: http://bit.ly/gAeCsa

Gawd, I love the Internet.
