Mountain bike accident postpones Shakespeare play
11 Feb 2008
Organisers of "Shakespeare in the Park" are apologising to the public
for the event being postponed.

Saturday night's peformance at the Riverbank Amphitheatre in Whakatane
couldn't go ahead following the leading man concussing himself prior
to the performance in a mountain biking accident.

But, Whakatane District Community Arts Council Chairman Ross Boreham
says this Summer Arts Festival event will be held on a date yet to be
confirmed.

He says it's unfortunate the event couldn't go ahead as planned.

Mr Boreham apologises to anyone who missed out.

Was it so late, friend, ere you went to bed,
That you do lie so late?

'Faith sir, we were riding till the
second cock: and mountain biking, sir, is a great
provoker of three things.

MACDUFF
What three things does drink especially provoke?

Porter
Marry, sir, nose-painting, sleep, and
vomiting.

Banter Banter Banter...you smile with hate at others misfortunes...
Darwinism would be great if you just dropped off the radar...or maybe
mother nature would call you a hypocrit when your on the plane and
strike it down...horrible thoughts ( well...maybe a GodSend) but
basically you speak the same hate. You horrible hypocrit..

No Facts, all opinions...that's you. I am sure you have statistics
made up in your mind...so go ahead... *sigh*

Thou gleeking flap-mouthed infection! Thou errant prick-eared
murderous coward! Thou churlish tickle-brained canker-blossom!

Oh, you are sick of self-love, my friend, and taste
with a distempered appetite. To be generous,
guiltless and of free disposition, is to take those
things for bird-bolts that you deem cannon-bullets:
there is no slander in an allowed fool, though he do
nothing but rail; nor no railing in a known discreet
man, though he do nothing but reprove.

If you enjoy language bardian you may enjoy a
Shakespearian version of "Who's On First."
