Of the funny

Something that's been amusing me recently: the PulpBard Project. It's the screenplay from Pulp Fiction, as it would've been written by William Shakespeare. I quote:
Vincent: And know'st thou what the French name cottage pie?
Julius: Say they not cottage pie, in their own tongue?
Vincent: But nay, their tongues, for speech and taste alike
Are strange to ours, with their own history:
Gaul knoweth not a cottage from a house.
Julius: What say they then, pray?
Vincent: Hachis Parmentier.
Julius: Hachis Parmentier! What name they cream?
Vincent: Cream is but cream, only they say la crème.
Julius: What do they name black pudding?
Vincent: I know not;
I visited no inn where't could be bought.
It's possible I'm easily amused, but I thought this was funny in concept, and clever in execution. Visit and enjoy!
