Remember this passage from Mark Twain's seminal book?
Something seem off? Well, that's on purpose, silly goose, thanks to Dumbo Books.
Richard Grayson of Brooklyn, New York -- in response to Publishers Weekly's announcement that Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer will be released without the word "nigger" -- has replaced the n-word with "hipster" in The Hipster Huckleberry Finn.
Thus far, no official endorsement or statement of protest has been issued from that hipster kid you know who shops at Urban Outfitters.
You can either pay $18.99 for the epic effort or read the hipster-fied copy in full here.
