Wherefore art thou JRR Tolkein

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, biblically , a fellow of infinite
lust, of most excellent fancy. He hath bore me on his back a
thousand times, and now how in my imagination it is!
My prong rises at it.

Today's trivia- Horny(to be inflamed with lust) is an very old term. Well before Shakespeare's
era " to have the horn"(an erection) was a popular euphemism. You can thank some stuffy old
Cambridge language professor for this kernel of wisdom.
