>Burn, Michael, "Why No Henry VII?"
>But surely Shakespeare did write Henry VII - under the pseudonym
Or did he actually write "Francis Bacon" under the pseudonym "Henry
VII"? - a text which has not actually survived until the present day,
but whose existence we can intuit by the things that are revealed to us
when we read the Folio text of the two "Henry IV" plays backwards and
translate the apparently nonsensical jumble of letters that this
produces into approximately similar phrases in dog Latin and Ancient
Hebrew. By this process we also learn that the great prophet
Shakespeare successfully predicted the coming of Mel Gibson!
(Falstaff's belching, when properly understood, is a detailed allegory
on this subject).
