Britain's Got … Talent?

My kids love the American version of this show.  I can only hope that we get our own version of this one particular act, though I don’t expect I’d let my kids watch it:

54 year-old actor Jonathan Hartman, an American, claimed his dream
was “to make Shakespeare accessible to everybody.”

His real dream seemed to spank Rebecca, a buxom young English girl
with a well-proportioned backside, who was only too happy to oblige him.

I have to report, for my fellow Geeks, that the article does *not* say which play he recited, because I’m sure that you’re dying to know.  I was.  I’m thinking it just had to be Taming of the Shrew.

“I rather enjoyed that !” TV’s Piers Morgan told Hartman voting him through. “But then I like Shakespeare.”

Amen to that, brother.

    they get through to the next round?!?

    The Brits love a good spanking act.

    rather more Victorian than Elizabethan.

  2. I'm still scratching my head over. among other things, his choice for the next "performance"–The Merchant of Venice???
    I guess something will "droppeth upon the 'place beneath'" in any event,
