Idle: Hamrag - Hamrag Yatlerot. Palin: Well, Graham, nice to have you on the show. Now, where do you come from? Idle: Bumcreland. Palin: Cumberland? Idle: Stah't it sepricely. Palin: And I believe you're working on an anagram version of Shakespeare? Idle: Sey, sey - taht si crreoct, er - ta the mnemot I'm wroking on "The Mating of the Wersh". Palin: "The Mating of the Wersh"? By William Shakespeare? Idle: Nay, by Malliwi Rapesheake. Palin: And what else? Idle: "Two Netlemeng of Verona", "Twelfth Thing","The Chamrent of Venice"....
