Shakespearean Revenge by Text: Thou shalt feel my endless Wrath

Edd Joseph hat 'ne PS3 für 'nen Hunni online gekauft und als ihn der Verkäufer abgerippt hat, schickte er ihm komplette Werke von Shakespeare als SMS. Dank seines Vertrags kostet ihn das nichts und die Texte werden vom Versender automatisch in 160-Zeichen-Pakete aufgeteilt. Bislang hat Joseph 22 Texte verschickt in insgesamt 17.424 SMS, das Telefon des PS3-Abzockers dürfte eine komplette Woche am Stück geklingelt haben. „O, from this time forth,
My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth!“ Well played, Hamlet!

He started sending them last Thursday and has been pinging plays throughout the weekend - often at night to cause maximum disruption. The average Shakespeare play - at 22,600 words - will be delivered in an annoying 792 texts to his rival's phone. The longest play, Hamlet, took an epic 1,143 text messages and defiant Edd has also sent Macbeth (600 texts), romance Cymbeline (847) and All's Well That Ends Well - a pleasing 861 messages.

Edd has now started getting abusive replies from the seller. He said: "I got the first reply after an hour, and then a few more abusive messages after that. His phone must have been going off pretty constantly for hours. But recently he has taken to calling me and giving me abuse on the phone. I tried to ask him if he was enjoying the plays, but he was very confused.
