  1. Given that he was stabbed 23 times, it’s unlikely that the crowd of participants were all able to get him in the back.

  2. ” it’s unlikely that the crowd of participants were all able to get him in the back.”

    But it IS likely that they all stabbed him in the head?

  3. Fronds, Romaines, crunchymen, lend me your emulsions,
    I come to eat Caesar, and not to praise him.
    The good that mayonnaise does lives after it,
    The bad is oft inferred with its belches.

  4. @ Shrung – Excellent lyricism, but I believe the attribution is outdated. In later years the bard of Stinkfart upon Crouton settled on the spelling “Shakesdressing“.

  5. Were you ‘bowled’ over, SingaporeBill?

    I’m afraid I’d only come up with word salad. myself.

    CIDU Bill should have started the thread rolling with,
    “Lettuce now begin with the puns…”

  6. Er, Bill, it was Cassius who had the “lean and hungry look.”

    (Brutus was himself a salad — “the noblest Romaine of them all.”)

    (And Casca wasn’t interested in salads, but he was “quiche metal once.”)

    But all old news today, since it was yesterday that was The Ides of Munch.

  7. Bill – you actually read it in school? The guy (not Robert) I dated my senior year was in my sophomore year English (and most other) class. When we were suppose to read Julius Caesar I did not bother to and then was answering the teacher’s questions, the guy was amazed and had thought I would be in trouble when the teacher asked questions and I raised my hand. I admit it. I knew the story and did not bother to read the play.
