ONE-MINUTE HAMLET By Tom Parr

When Hamlet heard that his father, the king of Denmark had been killed, he was quite upset and vowed vengeance on the murderer.
That wasn’t easy, as the killer had married the Queen, and so was King.
Hamlet’s girl friend Ophelia kept nagging him to marry her. When he told her to shut up and go to a nunnery, she went and drowned herself.
Hamlet took on the role of terminator and managed to kill Ophelia’s father. He then arranged for his mates, Rosencrantz and Gulderstien to be knocked off.
He watched his mother drink a cup of poison, with two sugars, and as a grand finale he killed the King, and as on encore, he and Ophelia’s brother, Laertes, had a confrontation with swords, and killed each other.
And that, dear listeners, was life in 14th century Denmark
