"For bonny sweet Robin is all my joy."(Hamlet, llll, iiiii)Who's Robin?
I always sit pat when I gets me a decent hand in poker :P
The absolute best line EVER in poetry is the following, by William Cowper: The poet's heart went pit-a-pat.
I staged Hamlet at blog Laugh-arse loonyPop with Miss Pavlov as Ophelia and Mister Bahnisch as the king. It was an enormous hit and I got requests for King Lear but my players were reluctant.
The setting was a Paddington cafe, with Yorick in the middle of the table. He had a speaking part but only Hamlet could hear him.Miss Tartan (at her request) played Orsic.
OSRIC (beg his pardon)
It's the kind of thing they show on America's Funniest Home Videos. Not that I'd know. Oh, no. Not me.
Some have interpreted this as a reference to Patrick, Hamlet's drunken Irish companion. I read an article once that made quite a strong, and amusing, case for Patrick's existence. Can't remember where, but.
