Subject:        Shakespeare in Advertising

Ad for winter flu medication recently seen in chemists window:

        "Avoid a winter of discontent"

This reminded me of an ad I had seen a few years ago.  A camping goods
store had advertised in the local paper:

        "Now is the winter of our discount tents"
