Comment:        Re: SHK 13.1673 Pop Shakespeare References

You might be interested in this small tidbit: The Stratford Upon Avon
Backpackers Hostel contains a cartoonish mural of Shakespeare
(presumeably), holding the Yorick skull (Arghhhh! It was Hamlet!!), with
a bubble caption of that very phrase, "To Pee Or Not to Pee, That is the
Question." It's on the door of the common room's loo.

The Summer West End debut of "Shockheaded Peter," also boasted the
Hamlet soliloquy...for a laugh (as many theatre productions and films
do) in its most well known version. So does the movie Adam Sandler movie
"Billy Madison." I only mention this because I've never read any
reference to it, unless I am mistaken.
