Robot Huck Finn

This video literally made me laugh out loud. It seems like a good one for this President's Day, where we celebrate men known for the changes they made in America. What will be the impact of these literary changes? How far have we really come?

This was funny but in many ways sad. Unfortunately, racism is still very much alive - that's probably why people are so uncomfortable with that book because they want to brush the subject under the rug. They did a great job with that video.

I'm with what Laura said. I did find humor in it, but it also made me think.

OMG! That is great. I posted about this a while back. I'm glad there are others who see how rediculous the situation is. Leave the book alone!

Hilarious. I don't have kids yet, so I can't imagine what kind of joys I have to look forward to in the form of small-minded sensationalists.

Lord love a duck. this video shows the lunacy of the whole thing as nothing else has. School is the last place we want to deal with anything uncomfortable or inconvenient. Indeed. Perfect. Just perfect. Sometimes the things that go on in this country to cover what we DON't want to admit, in the name of PC... makes me wanna throw things. Great entry.

Ugh! I won't get started on how I feel about the whole ridiculous re-written Huck Finn, but that video was fun!!! :-)

Hahah!! I love this video. Thanks for sharing. LOL the previous commenters already pointed out the ridiculousness of the slave version so I shall leave the serious talk to them. :)
