Another Shakespearean FoxTrot Comic

Amend, Bill. “Why does Shakespeare . . . ?” Say Hello to Cactus Flats. Kansas City: Andrews McMeel Publishing, 1993. 105.
People often ask me this question:
How long have you been a fan of Bill Amend's FoxTrot?
"Since the day I was born," I invariably reply.

People usually then ask a number of other questions, the most frequent of which is the following:
"Are you just providing some filler text so that the images in your blog post don't overlap?"
"Yes," I reply. "Oh, yes."

And then I provide a Shakespeare-Related FoxTrot comic for the enjoyment of all! In this one, Paige works on her Hamlet essay. Click on the image below to enlarge it.
