-Performing really bad Shakespeare.

- Posing as brothers to cheat family out of inheritance

-Printing up phoney advertisements.

First, they pretend to be a Duke and Dauphin

Second, they decide to put on a play of short scenes to make money

Third, they print the handbill about the runaway slave (Jim)

Regarding the handbills: The Duke breaks into a printer's shop and takes orders from some farmers. He collects cash and promises to print advertisements in the paper. In his final project, he makes a handbill showing a runaway slave and describing Jim. He tells the others that this handbill will make it seem as if they are taking Jim back to collect the reward.
