After being sold a non-existent PlayStation 3 on eBay, Bristol man Edd Joseph has set about getting his revenge on the scammer who duped him by sending him the entire works of Shakespeare as text messages.
This modern day bard clearly has a lot of time on his hands, and thumbs. Sneak supposes the PS3 was intended to fill those long, lonely hours, with texting a con man the next best thing.
According to the Bristol Post, Joseph discovered that he could copy and paste chunks of text into SMS messages, and has now already sent the text of 22 plays made up of 17,242 messages. There's around 12,000 messages to go.
Since beginning his onslaught, the scammer has responded with a few abusive messages but nothing can stop the Bard's works from getting through.
To join in the fun Sneak would like to suggest a selection of Shakespeare plays with an IT twist.
- King John MacAfee
- A Comedy of 404s
- Much ADA about NoSQL
- Azure Like it
- Antony and Cleopatch Tuesday
- A Midsummer Night's Dreamforce
- The Merry WiFis of Windsor
- All's Well That's Haswell
- Richard Samsung Galaxy S III
