"I can’t eat it, so you can have it Tom"
Another sketch, better one too after that warm up, I don’t think Huck said this in the book, I was more or less watching a youtube clip of the cartoon, and thought it would be funny.
Filthy huck, you can’t eat everything thrown at you know?
Sorry I suddenly became inactive here again. I’m working on it.

You’re Petting Your Cat All Wrong!
Jackson Galaxyexplains why everything can seem to be going fine and cuddly when your cat suddenly turns mean.
What he calls the “finger nose” actually works great for scratching too, if you go slow and are observant your cat will guide you to where they want skritches, for how long they want them, then where next, just like someone saying “Ohhh, up a little. A bit harder.” and will love you for it!
"explain the character’s motivations and the reasoning behind his actions and who he is"
there we go
Joe sent a glare at his friend, one that was seemed significantly less threatening and more pitiful given his watery eyes and red nose.
"King?" Joe asked, considering it for a moment."What would I be doin’? ‘N if’n I’m king, what’ll you be?"
"Well," Tom paused, making this story up on the spot, "well—a king’s got to sit on the throne and tell his knights what they ought to quest for—that’ll be me—and then once the quest is over you give the grand ol’ kingly speech about how the quest had saved the kingdom and made the people happier."
Satisfied he’d given his friend a simple enough task, he punctuated with a short nod but then added in a joking tone—
"But you ought to make it a good quest, or else I’ll start a revolution.”
let’s talk about how Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn manage to get themselves into a ton of trouble—whether it be that they’re a bad influence to children, their bad grammar, damning yourself to hell to save your friend, unabashed racism and use of slurs, or actually being accused of murder … Tom and Huck have been banned time and time again from school libraries across the country. Frankly, I think it’s becoming a tradition to try and throw them out of libraries. Just ‘cause.
Lately, the debates circle around censorship and to fix it we have some nifty new ways to avoid that pesky historical nonsense where once upon a time white people were racist. (—But not anymore. Gosh, no!! That is slander.)
According to some of these innovative censored texts, a black man’s trials in slave-holding America is equivalent to a zombie’s or a robot’s (because Jim was never actually human right??)
or, if you’re too cool for zombies and robots, you could follow a hipster’s tale of first-world problems and over-brewed coffee beans.
Because who needs to over-think serious issues when you can just laugh at them with a simple word change?
Banned books, everyone!
It’s every author’s free-advertisement dream come true.
"He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it—namely, in order to make a man or a boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to attain."

… Shucks, I didn’t intend this to come out as sarcastic as it did, I’m sorry.
