the best part of the Hamlet riff, originally printed in Humbug magazine, is that it got reprinted for an NEA conference, and from there, picked up by some newspapers, who printed it, and all without crediting the original writer, who had fun with his official letter of complaint to the New York Herald Tribune

The Herald Tribune gave him a spacious apology in the Sunday Forum section, stating they were "glad to give the author the credit he was due. Due, due, due."
