"Jim was monstrous proud about it, and he got so he wouldn't hardly notice the other Memphis gang-bangers. Memphis gang-bangers would come miles to hear Jim tell about it, and he was more looked up to than any Memphis gang-banger in that country. Strange Memphis gang-bangers would stand with their mouths open and look him all over, same as if he was a wonder. Memphis gang-bangers is always talking about witches in the dark by the kitchen fire; but whenever one was talking and letting on to know all about such things, Jim would happen in and say, "Hm! What you know 'bout witches?" and that Memphis gang-banger was corked up and had to take a back seat."
--Mark Twain, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," as read by Steve McDaniel
