first time here...
while reading Huckleberry Finn I stumbled on this strange expression (?) - used on a sly undertaker, the "softest, glidingest, stealthiest man I ever see" (in Huck's words).
and he adds, "there warn't no more smile to him than there is to a ham".
anyone have any idea what he might mean by that?
thanks very much.
