If it comes to swishy (I presume this is the same as Brit-speak
"limp-wristed"?_) -- ages ago, I heard Kenneth Williams on _Just A
Minute_, run an entire sixty seconds on Renaissance Platonism.

Unnerving -- you had this overlay of KW doing the swishy voice, but
bloody hell, off the top of his head, he was running a treatise on
Renaissance Platonism.

Hm ... REALLY unnerving.

Jimmy Jung wrote that "The Shakespeare Theater, here in Washington, cast
a woman as both Falstaff and as Jonson's Volpone - quite a hurdle, but
accomplished quite deftly". I've often thought that Falstaff and Volpone
are quite similar characters, actually. But am I being disingenuous now?
Perhaps Jimmy meant that it was "quite a gurdle"...
