Huckster Finnster the Hipster

If Mark Twain had been born a century later in Williamburg, Brooklyn, then the title of his great work most likely would have been "Huckster Finnster the Hipster." Huckster's haberdasher would have insisted that he sport a trucker cap (slightly off center), a 1970's pin-stripe suit jacket (a bit too small), along with Levis (with grease stains), while kicking around with Pro Cons (Chuck Taylor's) as his rides. These clothing items would have replaced his straw weave hat, the suit that the widow Douglas purchased for him and his bare feet.
