Knock, Knock

Ok, people, we need some Shakespeare knock knock jokes.  After all, the man invented the form, right?  Fill in your own Hamlet or Macbeth reference, your choice :).

Feel free to make one up on the spot, that’s what I spend most of my time on Twitter doing.

“Knock, knock.”
Who’s there?
“Earl of Oxford.
Earl of Oxford who?
“Precisely.”

That’s my only real entry thus far that meets the appropriate form (i.e. you could actually tell it to somebody who plays their part correctly).  Others, that do not fit the form:

“Knock, knock.”
Who’s th….oh, hi Lavinia.  Doesn’t it hurt your head to do that?

“Knock, knock.”

Knock, knock.”

Knock, knock.”
Darnit didn’t we hire a Porter who’s supposed to get that? Has he been drinking again?

What else ya got?
