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."

Whimsically,
Nancy Charlton
