Subject:        Shakespop: Shakespeare Action Figure

At http://www.mcphee.com/amusements/current/11188.html you can see, or
even buy, if you are so inclined, a Shakespeare action figure.  He is
holding a quill pen and a fat red book, so presumably children at play
can pretend that Sh. is writing more plays.

If the idea of a Sh. action figure is repulsive, you can go for Pope
Innocent III or Einstein instead.  Or windup walking sushi.

[Editor's Note: The action figure is also sold in the Folger Shakespeare
Library's Gift Shop and you can actually move the quill and the book for
even more striking poses. -Hardy]
