James Conlan writes:

"As this is a direct literary allusion, there is no need to imagine a
satire of Shakespeare at all."

If scientific method was applied with the same aplomb as the 'no need'
approach of literary criticism, I think we'd all still be living in a
Ptolemaic universe with spontaneous generation as the leading theory of
procreation.
