“To be, or not to be, that is the question”
By William Shakespeare, otherwise known as Willy Wiggle-sword.
(from Hamlet, spoken by Hamlet)
To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them.
Spoken from Lincoln’s Woodshed
by his girlfriend, Della:
To share, or not to share, it’s out of the question:
Whether ’tis nobler for the stomach to suffer
The stings and pangs of outrageous starvation,
Or to take in my arms the tines of moose
And by chewing, end the ends of them.
I’ve got my nose right on this tine and it smells so-o-o go-o-o-od!
Oh yeah! I’ve found the mother lode!
But what if Lincoln finds me and sees that I didn’t call him in on the smorgasbord … should I tell him what I found?
M-m-m…. O-h-h-h! This is so-o-o-o good.
It’s nice to share, but … no-no-no-no-no, I have to get my fill first. Call me greedy, but I’m not sure Lincoln would share if he were the one who found it first … would he?
What’s that? You say I have a dribble on my chin? That’s okay. I can wipe it off later. No time right now.
To share or not to share…. Oh piffle! I’m gonna go for it.
I’ll just point out that I’ve left him lots of other tines.
Still, I’d hate to be caught being greedy. I’d better make a run for it.
I can always go back to my feeding station on the other post. There’s still some good nibbling left on those tines.
Amazing how much flavour is still in there after 17 years.
Wanna watch me nibble with my sharp teeth? I warn you that Anneli is not a good photographer. She wiggled as I nibbled. Also, try to ignore the neighbours’ power washer. I did.

This is the ghost of Nibbles Past.
Don’t touch me, Della.
You’d better run fast.
