Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1174 Weird Appropriations

I'd like to thank David Linton for this citation, which I'll be showing
my class tonight, as we analyze the wooing scene from three productions.

I stumbled across this list, or something similar, a little while ago:
http://haggisbutt.tripod.com/shakes.html#boy .  Note that the first
choice of "baby names" for a boy is Aaron, from Titus Andronicus.  I
don't particularly mind Shakespeare being used commercially, since there
are worse things to use in advertising, but I do mind him being deployed
ineptly.

Cheers,
Se
