There are many theories as to quite what drove the Prince of Denmark mad. The perceived faithlessness of the Queen? His initial lack of courage to revenge his father swiftly and violently? A dodgy batch of Swedish mushrooms? Too many emails?

Hamlet's email inbox

Have a look at inboxes for Romeo and Macbeth.

Ghost tours for Norwegian tour groups? LOL! That was great, Mark. Sad that Horatio’s memo didn’t get opened, and I agree that Hamlet could have used a beer. I like Queen Gertrude telling him to stop playing with the skull.

That Amazon recommendation is spot on. 😛 And LOL at Claudius’s one-star review for the play! Thanks for another great inbox!

(But…what happened to the [SPAM] mail?)

LOL – I’ll have to think of some Hamlet spam and put it up as a bonus!

Love this! It’s really accurate too 🙂
Like the “STOP the skull thing” and the twitter ban on ghosts – genius!

I really liked ‘film the king on your iPhone while the play runs’ and ‘Ticket and England visa attached (print and bring to docks)’ – I find the juxtaposition between old and new very amusing!

I think Hamlet spam would probably come from Osric. 🙂

Unopened Ophelia emails? Priceless.

Brilliant! I laughed out loud several times; however I all but teared up at the Ophelia emails. Beautiful mix of hilarity and compelling insinuation, very Shakespearean 🙂
