Mark Twain's Use of "[word removed in order to comply with Google's Publisher Policy] in the woodpile"

Posted by Gabriela on June 16, 2000

My stepson is reading Tom Sawyer and he ran across the phrase "[word removed in order to comply with Google's Publisher Policy] hiding in the woodpile." Does anyone know what this phrase means in a figurative sense?
Thanks,
Gabriela
