Subject:        Shakespearean tchotchke

My apology to the serious literary scholars on the list, but I can't
repress my interest in what F. E. Halliday referred to as "The Cult of
Shakespeare."

The latest Fahrney's pen catalog includes a "Select limited edition"
Shakespeare pen. For just $2,800, you can get a pen decorated with a
portrait and a facsimile of the Bard's signature (I can't tell which
spelling). Furthermore, "Special inlay holds a piece of wood planted by
Shakespeare himself." The thing looks rather ugly to me.

Those interested can check:
