Subject: Shakespeare Does Spam!
Somehow I have been caught in the nets of several web crawlers or
trawlers or whatever they are, and I receive too many ads for debt
consolidation, viagra, and make your fortune. Some of these feature a
footer with an ongoing story told in clever sheer nonsense. Today one
came for a perfume charged with pheromones, with this:
Shakespeare, to whom you all defer, he replied. Do you not remember that
he says: 'Thy demon (that's thy spirit which keeps thee) is Noble,
courageous, high, unmatchable ' Oh, if Shakespeare says it, that's all
right, answered the boy
Would it be more all right to keep the dashes of the original rather
than substitute parentheses?
"Speak this no more."
