Actually, I think this is rather sweet -- especially the "Replant Birnam
Wood!" side of it.

The trouble is, it's been done ever so long ago, when Rex Stout's fat
detective Nero Wolfe gave-up on reading _Richard III_ (and, at least he
was consistent, also Thomas More) because of flaws in the evidential
case for murder.

{As alphabet soup is taking over even in the UK, it perhaps ought to be
explained that MSP stands for "member of the Scottish Parliament", as
MEP figures "member of the European Parliament".

If Kilroy Silk's Vanitas party ("V") ever gets off the ground, we may
have MEPs fighting for MSP seats against UKIP, which will truly cause
confusion for anyone who plays Scrabble.}

In the same vein, see Reisert's more recent Ophelia's Revenge-- a
retelling of Hamlet from Ophelia's point of view.
