Last night at pub trivia:
Question: In the book Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, what was the name of the runaway slave who teams up with Huck on his voyage down the Mississippi River?
Friend 1: It's Nigger Jim*.
Me: I'm just going to put Jim.
Friend 1: I think you have to put down the whole name.
Friend 2: But I don't like that word.
Me: I don't either.
Friend 1: Just put it down so we don't lose a point.
Friend 3 (who is African American): I can't believe you wrote that. Racist.
Me: If I have sex with you later will that make up for it?
Friend 3: Sure.
Later she passed me a note: You ready to pop the cork on this bitch?
*Apparently this is the name used by many critics and has been perpetuated ever since, but never appears in the book itself. Thank you Wikipedia!
