The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 13.1438 Tuesday, 28 May 2002

Subject: Shakespeare Duck
One of the most ghastly objects I have ever seen was just sent to me by
a fan of mine. (I know it was a fan, because that is how the anonymous
note was signed.)
It is a Shakespeare rubber duck. Yes, a rubber duck that is suitable
for floating in the tub when you take a bath. It has the basic rubber
duck body shape, but in faux-Elizabethan clothing, and I guess it
resembles Shakespeare--if Shakespeare had a beak.
If anyone has the bad taste to want this thing, please let me know
My apology if my *fan* is a member of SHAKSPER. This isn't a rejection
of your good wishes, only of having too much kitschy clutter in my life.
All the best,
