Don't mess with this guy - he'll Shakespeare your phone

Don't mess with this guy - he'll Shakespeare your phone

Methinks he doth protest too much.

Edd Joseph paid online for a PS3, but the seller ran off with his 80 pounds and didn't give him anything. So he did what anybody looking for revenge would do: He texted "Macbeth" in its entirety to the seller's phone.

From The Telegraph:

Mr Joseph discovered he can simply copy the words from the internet and paste them into a text message - without costing him a penny on his unlimited mobile phone package.

He sends it as one text but his victim can only receive them in 160 character chunks - meaning the 37 works of Shakespeare will buzz through in 29,305 individual texts.

So far Mr Joseph has sent 22 plays including Hamlet, Macbeth and Othello which have been delivered in 17,424 texts.

He reckons the remaining 15 works will take another few days to send - meaning his adversary's phone will have been constantly beeping for nearly a full week.

Now that's revenge!
