Shakespeare revenge

“IF YOU PRICK US DO WE NOT BLEED? IF YOU TICKLE US DO WE NOT LAUGH? IF YOU POISON US DO WE NOT DIE? AND IF YOU WRONG US SHALL WE NOT REVENGE?” – William Shakespeare

It started innocently enough. Edd Joseph was in the market for a PlayStation 3 (PS3) and took to the internet to find one.

He found one for £80 and sent off the money to the seller.

The PS3 never showed up and Joseph got pissed.

To revenge the failed transaction Joseph began texting the complete works of Shakespeare to the seller. Yep, the complete works, all 37 plays in 160 character chunks! 29,305 individual texts in all.

He’s already sent sent 22 plays, including Hamlet, Macbeth and Othello, and plans to finish up in the next few days.

Awesome!
