Subject: Hidden Shakespeare in Gay Porn
In a perfectly preposterous gay porn epic called WARLORDS, 1989 (A Tylor
Von Film)--"They ravish the land and leave no man standing in a time of
sexual decadence"-starring mostly stringy and very swishy English boys,
the warlord commands his two slaves to bring in the cutie he sees
wandering the countryside in his magic mirror. The dialogue is of the
"You can fuck him but don't bruise him" variety, but at this point one
of the slaves cites one of Macbeth's lines, saying, "If it were done
when 'tis done it were well it were done quickly."
