Magic Shake-Ball

Dear Magic Shake-Ball:

What if Henry VIII had had to abide by the Uniform Code of Military Justice? Would he have sent topless paintings of himself to Ann Boleyn anyway?


"Fie on sinful fantasy!
Fie on lust and luxury!
Lust is but a bloody fire.
Kindled with unchaste desire ...
Pinch him, fairies, mutually,
Pinch him for his villainy."

(Merry Wives of Windsor 5.5.90-97)


Yeah. I don't think pinching would have really stopped him. He'd eat those fairies for breakfast. With a rich sauce and a gallon of malmsey.
