One example would be Ms. Watson. She is portrayed as a good Christian woman, and yet she owns slaves. In the end, we find out that her good Christian virtue wins out; she changed her mind about selling Jim and set him free....... the irony, Jim doesn't know it and has a wealth of experiences because he doesn't.

Second, we have the feud between the Shepardsons and the Grangerfields. Satire can be found in the fact that it mirrors a real feud (the Hatfields and McCoys) and succeeds in making the real families look ridiculous.

Third...... Sherburn's lynching

and four....... Tom and Huck's rescue of Jim from the shed; hilarious.
