Congragulations are in order

... to Addie, for joining Facebook. I actually say this primarily to congratulate myself because I'd like to think it was due largely to an intense pestering session on Sunday night (and maybe Kellie pestered her on Saturday night, too!). And to funny things like the fact that I saw pictures of her sister's wedding via her cousin's facebook site ... ah, this newfangled electronic age!

Anyway, I had to giggle today when I read on Mindy's blog about this hilarious and clever re-telling of Hamlet, as though it were being published in a Facebook news feed.

Here's the first two "stanzas" (or whatever you'd call it). Read the whole thing; if you're even remotely a literature nerd and you (like me and now Addie) have fallen head-over-heels crazy for FB after months of resisting it, you'll enjoy:

Horatio thinks he saw a ghost.
Hamlet thinks it's annoying when your uncle marries your mother right after your dad dies.
The king thinks Hamlet's annoying.
Laertes thinks Ophelia can do better.
Hamlet's father is now a zombie.
- - - -
The king poked the queen.
The queen poked the king back.
Hamlet and the queen are no longer friends.
Marcellus is pretty sure something's rotten around here.
Hamlet became a fan of daggers.
