Magic Shake-Ball



Dear Magic Shake-Ball:

Today at work I noticed that there is a bar code on my office door. What does this mean? Am I living in Gattaca?

Answer:

"My lord, I would I might entreat your honor / To scan this thing no farther; leave it to time." (Othello 3.3.244-245)

Interpretation:

Why? Because you want me to let myself get scanned and shut up about it? Don't try to pull an Iago on me, Shake-Ball. Just who are you working for anyway?

Answer:

"Where is my mother! why, she is within, / Where should she be? How oddly thou repliest!"
(Romeo and Juliet 2.5. 58-59)

Interpretation:

No, how oddly thou repliest. Unless you're trying to tell me that you're working for Mary Arden aka your aristocratic mother aka The Man.
