Magic Shake-Ball

Question: Should I take my kids with me on the road and force them to perform in monkey suits?

Answer: "Ha, ha, ha!" (Othello, 4.1.115)

Hmmm. Cryptic. Either the Shake-Ball thinks I was asking a rhetorical question, and is laughing along with me (what kind of mother would do that after all?), or it's a prophetic glimpse of the successful responses I'll get from audiences if I move forward with my plan. I think I need to do another random shake of the Norton:

Answer: "O, I die, Horatio" (Hamlet, 5.2.294)

Okay. I'll take that as a "No."
