Reading Huck Finn

In chapter one of Huck Finn, Huck says about the Widow "After supper she got out her book and learned me about Moses and the Bulrushers and I was in a sweat to find out all about him; but by and by she let it out that Moses had been dead a considerable long time; so then I didn't care no more about him, because I don't take no stock in dead people." Mark Twain is often noted for his ability to disguise wisdom in laughter. What is the hidden truth about Huck and people, in general, in this line? Do you agree with it? Explain. (You are AP now; your answer must be very well developed.) This post closes on June 13th at midnight.
