The lay's the thing.

Just got an email from Richard Burt, the Amherst English prof whose book Unspeakable Shaxxxspeares was the inspiration for my Playboy article, Bone Up Your Shakespeare. "By the way," Burt writes," Vivid brought out two "Clitts notes" parodies, one called Much Ado About Nuttin and other called Julius Eats'er. [Um, last 3 links not safe for work] They look like Cliffs Notes covers. Just compilations, though. 0% Bard." Speaking of bardcore, I've just recently found out exactly how raunchy Act IV, Scene i of Merry Wives of Windsor is -- though you still wouldn't call it four hours of nonstop action.
