Dear colleagues,

 From the midst of examinations, I offer these, one a strange typo, one 
a lovely misreading:

1)   At the end of Hamlet, Horatio says he will tell the story again:

                                 "So shall you hear
     Of carnal, bloody and unnatural pets."

Down, Prince!

2)    [from an answer on Richard 3]

"Buckingham proposes that the Prince be brought from Ludlow on a little 
train. Rivers asks why it must be a small train. Buckingham says that a 
large one might renew the civil war..."

A really USEFUL engine, no doubt.

Cheers,
Tom
