Subject:        Hardy's Quiz Question

     >Do you know . . . By what nick-name a production of *Romeo and
     >Juliet* featuring a racing-car became known?

Oh no... Don't tell me this was the "Alfa" Romeo production? Everybody
groan.

[Editor's Note: The Quiz Question was not mine, but one of the teasers
on the back of Stanley Wells's *William Shakespeare: The Quiz Book*.
Other teasers are "Who embarks from Milford Haven and who lands at
Ravensupurgh?" "From which play did Cole Porter take the title of his
musical *Kiss Me Kate*?" "What is the inscription on Shakespeare's
gravestone.?"  One other correction from my Editor's Note of yesterday
appended to John Velz's contribution to the Games Query, my magnetic
words come from William's Wit Kit: Create Your Own Shakespearean
Insults. Very therapeutic to spew out "Monstrous hyperbolical minimus"
on the proper occasion. --Hardy]
