Tom Sawyer accepts Allah - Mark Twain reported loading pistols (UPDATE)

And if you thought the "Mohammed Cartoons" scandal was a passing phase...

Geez, ya' can't make this crap up:
Pinocchio, Tom Sawyer and other characters have been converted to Islam in new versions of 100 classic stories on the Turkish school curriculum.

"Give me some bread, for Allah's sake," Pinocchio says to Geppetto, his maker, in a book stamped with the crest of the ministry of education.

"Thanks be to Allah," the puppet says later.
As one talkback on Little Green Footballs put it: "I'd like to see those bastards rewrite Green Eggs and Ham!"
