Twain’s humor does not have the sole purpose of entertaining the reader, but also conveying a serious message. One of the instances of ironic humor appears in this chapter documenting Huck’s reaction to Widow Douglas’ attempts at civilization. Huck’s views are all completely natural, free of refinements and breeding which mark the Widow Douglas and her sister, Miss Watson. Huck's humour comes off as dry yet perceptive. It is as f Twain is satirizing social norms off the south through Huck's dry socially perceptive humour.
