Dachshund Shakespeare

It's going to be a great day when you find a site called Shakespeare Goes to the Dogs. View six plays acted by cartoon dachshunds! My favorite was Titus Andronicus.

The author of the site, Muriel Morris, is a teacher who draws the cartoons for her students. She gives them to her class before they see the play; the comics "give them an idea of the plot of the play so they don't feel lost."

Makes using "Tales from Shakespeare" seem rather bland. I had never seen a dachshund in a toga before - three cheers!
