A graphic designer who was ripped off by an internet seller got his revenge by texting him the entire works of Shakespeare.
Edd Joseph, 24, was furious when he bought a PS3 games console on Gumtree for £80 and the vendor failed to deliver the goods.
So he decided to take his revenge by texting the entire works of the Bard to his nemesis – all 30,000 words.
Mr Joseph discovered he can simply copy the words from the internet and paste them into a text message – without costing him a penny on his unlimited mobile phone package.
He sends it as one text but his victim can only receive them in 160 character chunks – meaning the 37 works of Shakespeare will buzz through in 29,305 individual texts.
30,000 texts ain’t 30,000 words, is it?
