Not Shakespeare, but seasonal-

I've just discovered that one of my high school seniors, maybe wishing
some of Chaucer's stories sweeter than they are, has written about "The
Cadbury Tales."  (While visions of sugar plums, &c.)

A sentence from a paper received more than a dozen years ago sticks in
the memory.

"Iago persuades Othello that Cassio has been quilty with Desdemona".

John Velz, a teacher only in happy memory.

My contribution to this fine collection:

A group of students recently went to see a production of Julius Caesar
that featured a cast that was uneven, to say the least.  In an extra
credit section on the last exam, they were asked:

"For three points, describe how Julius Caesar was assassinated."

One brave student responded:  "Poorly."

Bingo.  Full credit.
