Excellent quiz, as always. A couple more: "A sailor's wife had chestnuts in her lap" (Macbeth) and "I had rather be set quick i' the earth / And bowled to death with turnips" (MWW).
Feb 14th, 2011 at 09:35 GMT
Thanks--this is a broad category and the source is not as comprehensive as I'm used to so I had to branch out as much as I could. Yours have been added.
Feb 19th, 2011 at 14:50 GMT
Brilliant. And I loved the bonuses, which I wasted about half my time trying to find. How many are there in total? I found 20. I'm guessing there are a range of ridiculous foods that bring up messages like "Now you're just messing with me"? I got it for sushi, and you're right, I was.
Feb 19th, 2011 at 19:09 GMT
I found 18, and I got that message after paprika, I think. My favorite is the bonus for avocado. :) Loved it!
Feb 19th, 2011 at 19:19 GMT
@bazmerelda: There are I think 42 bonuses right now. Although, the paprika/sushi bonus just counts as one. I think that was my only two-in-one. Thanks!
Feb 19th, 2011 at 23:37 GMT
May I also say how much I LOVE the fact that there is a bonus for "Chiron" and "Demetrius"?
Feb 20th, 2011 at 00:37 GMT
Hemlock is poisonous. Just sayin'.
Feb 20th, 2011 at 01:29 GMT
Right. Um, sure, I knew that. (I'll take out Hemlock)
Feb 20th, 2011 at 04:28 GMT
Danishes doesn't get a mention? Hamlet was full of them!
Feb 20th, 2011 at 17:36 GMT
great quiz. a minor note, mint should come after milk
Feb 20th, 2011 at 19:40 GMT
First one I thought of was posset.
Feb 22nd, 2011 at 18:00 GMT
"And mice and rats and such small deer/Have been Tom's food for many a long year" (King Lear)
Feb 23rd, 2011 at 01:30 GMT
"I pressed me none but such toasts-and-butter, with hearts in their bellies no bigger than pins' heads, and they have bought out their services" (1 Henry IV -- there is also a reference to toast in part 2). Awesome quiz! I have a Ph.D. in Ren lit and I got 91... :D
Feb 23rd, 2011 at 01:59 GMT
@angevin: The reference in part II looks like the 'cheers' kind of toast, but toasts-and-butter has been put in. (If it weren't for Falstaff, this list wouldn't be half as long.) Glad you like the quiz:)
@ops: damn, that would've made a great bonus
@simo, @exackerly, @dicko: thanks! the changes have been made and posset along with, um, Edgar's mice and rats have been put in.
If anyone else thinks I'm missing something, type it into opensourceshakespeare.org's keyword search and it will tell you if the word appears anywhere in Shakespeare. Thanks for keeping this thing accurate.

No haggis in Macbeth? I got 20 bonus: chocolate,carrot,sage,rum,blueberry,brandy,banana, tomato,tequila,peanut,pasta,cobbler, peach, pecan,broccoli, celery, cod,cashew, blueberries, pumpkin. I started adding things from the feast in "Armaments", slothe and fruit bats, and breakfast cereals, but I forgot the anchovies!

GEORGE MICHAEL REFERENCE FOR THE WIN
Mar 4th, 2011 at 16:52 GMT
Loved the Soup Nazi bonus. Elizabethans were a pretty well fed lot
Mar 4th, 2011 at 17:01 GMT
It wouldn't except beef as an answer.
Mar 4th, 2011 at 17:07 GMT
'Music' was my first answer, is that bad?
Mar 4th, 2011 at 17:14 GMT
I think you missed one:
Alas, poor Yorrick. I knew him, Pistachio.
Mar 4th, 2011 at 17:19 GMT
whoo, 27 bonuses! Also, the quiz doesn't take "raisin" for "raisins."
Mar 4th, 2011 at 17:31 GMT
My favorite bonus was the Count Chocula.
Mar 4th, 2011 at 17:33 GMT
Came for the quiz, stayed for the bonuses.
Mar 4th, 2011 at 17:49 GMT
Great quiz, bonuses are brilliant. As for my entry in the cod competition..."Plenty of pieces but no room for the real thing".
Mar 4th, 2011 at 18:14 GMT
who are the .2% that came up with vetches haha no pizza? dang
Mar 4th, 2011 at 18:25 GMT
28 bonus answers. Yeeesssssssssss
Mar 4th, 2011 at 18:40 GMT
Good quiz! I had fun entering stuff like "pizza" just to see the bonus answers. Thanks.
Comment below threshold:
Mar 4th, 2011 at 19:11 GMT
Would be a lot better without the smartass bonus answers
Mar 4th, 2011 at 19:21 GMT
Outstanding. No 'rue'? Or is that considered a poison?
Mar 4th, 2011 at 20:00 GMT
As jefe_ said, I missed several things because I typed the singular instead of the plural. About half-way through I discovered what was going on, but really had no way of remembering what I would have needed to type again in the plural. And several items were acceptable as singular. It should be all one way or the other.
Mar 4th, 2011 at 22:18 GMT
Wait, "skim milk"? Where?
Mar 4th, 2011 at 23:07 GMT
@InsertCleverName: "Skim milk, and sometimes labour in the quern/ And bootless make the breathless housewife churn" (Midsummer) and
"...for moving such a dish of skim milk with so honourable an action!" (Henry IV Part One)
And sorry about the 'beef' thing, guys, I've asked for it to be fixed.
Mar 5th, 2011 at 02:11 GMT
Codpieces yes, cod no
Mar 5th, 2011 at 03:02 GMT
You can read my mind! I did try sushi just to mess with you.
Mar 5th, 2011 at 06:05 GMT
Great quiz, best bonuses I've seen! Good old Shakes-Pear
Mar 5th, 2011 at 08:32 GMT
I love the bonus answers. I actually only got 'ham' and 'cheese' when typing them in as the prefix to 'burger', trying to get more bonus answers.
Mar 5th, 2011 at 12:52 GMT
Could you accept 'whisky' without the e? Both spellings are widely used.
