He said he’d cowhide me till I was black and blue if I didn’t raise some money for him. I borrowed three dollars from Judge Thatcher, and pap took it and got drunk, and went a-blowing around and cussing and whooping and carrying on.

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 5. Pap shows no shame in the abusive way he treats his son Huck and in his public displays of drunkenness.
