...calling the local store of a national bookseller chain:
Argent: Do you have an individual copy of Shakespeare's King Lear?
Bookseller: Who? How do you spell that?
Argent (trying hard not to laugh): King Lear. K-I-N-G L-E-A-R.
Bookseller: Hang on. (typing sounds) Ah, you're in luck. We do have a copy.
Argent: Thank you. I'll be right there.
Bookseller: No problem.
Okay, is Shakespeare not taught in schools anymore?
