I totally LOL'ed. Like had to put the book down lol'ed:


"It can be done," said the ghost. "Your answer lies with the witches of Great Birnam Wood."

"Or you could just fucking tell me," said I.

"Nooooo," sang the ghost, all ghostly and ethereal...


_______


All of Regan's trial scene....

"Si," said the (lost) Spaniard.

Gloucester's two "suicide" scenes

Here are my 3 favorites...

1) The scene where Goneril is asking Pocket to show her his man-junk as she is soon to be married.
"Are they all this small?"
"Most are smaller, in fact."
"May I touch it?"
"If you feel you must."
"Well, would you look at that."
"See, now you've angered it."

---------------------------------------------------------------

2) The scene where Gloucester (unknowingly) tries to kill himself with Jones.
"You threw yourself on a puppet," said Edgar.
"So, I'm not dead?"
"Correct" said I.
"I threw myself on a puppet?"
"That is what I've been saying."

--------------------------------------------------------------

3) One of my new favorite words: Boffnacity.
"I took your advice about not talking about her boffnacity, even with the duke dead and all, can't be too careful."

Plus the footnote:
Boffnacity -- an expression of shagnatiousness, fit. From the Latin boffusnatious.

I really really want to see or read Green Eggs and Hamlet. There's your sequel right there if you want to make one of Fool.

I'm about half way through Fool.

It is a joy to read, and though the AG has mentioned how "ye olde English" was a challenge to write, you sure could have fooled me. Seems like he took to it like a duck to water. The story and actions sort of call to mind King Lear done by Monty Python.

I especially enjoyed the mental image of Pocket clinging to the wall while the anchoress attends to his naughty bits and falling to the floor when the bishop comes in.
