    " One of these fellows was about seventy or upwards, and had a bald head and very grey whiskers. He had an old battered-up slouch hat on, and a greasy blue woolen shirt, and ragged old blue jeans britches stuffed into his boot-tops, and home-knit galluses- no, he only had one. He had an old long-tailed blue jeans coat with slick brass buttons flung over his arm, and both of them had big, fat, ratty-looking carpet-bags." Mark Twain

    Slave codes were established in the South as a way to control the activities of slaves. Slave codes were passed to monitor not only what slaves could do, but freed slaves as well. In some states, blacks were only allowed to work as domestic servants or in the field of agriculture where other laws made it illegal for blacks to live in towns and cities. Blacks were denied the right to vote or to possess firearms. However when slave codes became viewed as unconstitutional, the South returned them in the form of new laws: the Jim Crow laws. Jim Crow was a term used to stereotype blacks as a song and dance man team.However, in time, they too were seen as unconstitutional.

    {images.jpeg} Along their travels, Huck and Jim become involved with their cons by helping perform plays to the townsfolk. In one scam, the nonesuch scam, they were supposed to perform scenes from Richard III and the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet. However, the king decides to spice things up a bit, and comes out as colorful as a rainbow...in the nude! What's even more surprising is the fact that the audience doesn't get upset at the fact that he's naked... but the show wasn't nearly long enough!

    " The other fellow was about thirty, and dressed about as ornery."
    Duke is the brains of the duo, King is more of the follower: It's ironic, since the King's title is higher than that of a Duke! He comes up with a scam to perform scenes from King Richard III and Romeo and Juliet in town and receive money. He teaches the play to King who is not familiar with Shakespeare. Later on, he performs his version of Hamlet's famous soliloquy to King, Huck, and Jim.

    What to do at a funeral...?
    Top 10 Con men
    The Circus

    In the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huck and Jim encounter two strange men, two very sneaky con men, one is known as King. King is described as around seventy or older and bald. He's more of a follower than a leader, very wimpy... (he cries over nearly anything.)
    " One of these fellows was about seventy or upwards, and had a bald head and very grey whiskers. He had an old battered-up slouch hat on, and a greasy blue woolen shirt, and ragged old blue jeans britches stuffed into his boot-tops, and home-knit galluses- no, he only had one.
