Subject:        TWOW: A Shakespeare Word Game--Pt 2

The acronyms and the quotes are:

APOBYH:  "A plague on both your houses" (R&J)

ATGING:  "All that glitters is not gold" (MOV)

CHALSTDOW:  "Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war" (JC)

NITWOOD:  "Now is the winter of our discontent" (R3)

ODSOIS:  "Out, damned spot! out, I say!" (Macbeth)

SIRITSOD:  "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark"
(Hamlet)

--
So what about TWOW?  "The worst of words" (Othello)

BTW credit (or abuse) for this game goes to Gary Russell of Melbourne FL
who suggested this to the "Says You" show
(http://www.wgbh.org/radio/saysyou/).

Cheers,
Al Magary
