Subject:        TWOW: A Shakespeare Word Game--Pt 1

The NPR wordplay show "Says You" had a Shakespeare word game segment
proposed by a man in Florida who remembered being part of a high school
drama group given an acronym from "As You Like It"--i.e., they were
called the ATWAS.

ATWAS:  "All the world's a stage."

So the panelists on "Says You" were given these acronyms and asked to
produce the Shakespeare quotes:

APOBYH
ATGING
CHALSTDOW
NITWOOD
ODSOIS
SIRITSOD

Answers in Pt 2 of this post.

Cheers,
Al Magary
