Funny: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
  • Tom, in chapter 5, uses the wealth he accumulated from his whitewashing scam to trade for Sunday school tickets (that you're supposed to win by memorizing Bible verses). By accumulating ten yellow tickets through trading, he's able to win his own bible; the boys he traded with feel duped. Seeing that Tom apparently memorized two thousand verses, Judge Thatcher asks Tom to tell him the first two of the twelve disciples to be appointed. Tom, of course having no idea, eventually nervously yells out "DAVID AND GOLIATH!"
    Let us draw the curtain of charity over the rest of the scene.
