Shakespeare Revisited

Inspired by Jake and Dinos Chapman, the
Britart duo who caused a storm after defacing Goya etchings in 2003 —
such as Insult to Injury, pictured — here, with apologies to the Bard,
is a defacement of his work. (Most of it was too good to change,



To be (bomb), or not to be (bomb)–that is the (their) question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind (Iran) to (buffer) suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous (amassing) fortune
Or to take [nuclear] arms against a sea of troubles (shekels)
And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep(sheep)
No more–and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks (stocks)
That flesh (cash) is heir to. ‘Tis a consummation (consumption)
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep–
To sleep–perchance to dream (cream): ay, there’s the rub (baba),
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil (quest for oil),
Must give us pause (cause). There’s the respect (disrespect)
That makes calamity (Kalashnikov) of (so) long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’ oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’ unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels (infidel)s bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary (hairy) life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovered country, from whose bourn
No traveller (groveller) returns, puzzles (pizzas) the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus (Lack) of conscience does (makes) cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution (UN resolutions)
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprise of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action. — Soft you now,
The fair Ophelia (Georgedubia)! — Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remembered.
