359. Lovers and Mad Men

It just occurred to me that the quote from A Midsummer Night’s Dream that is so lovely – “Lovers and madmen have such seething brains/Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend/More than cool reason ever comprehends” – would be really interesting if a space was inserted between “mad” and “men”. Thus creating “Mad Men”. And now that I think about it, we could probably apply a Shakespearean character to each one on Mad Men…Don has a bit of a Hamlet complex now and then, especially when you consider the daddy/mommy issues…
