Burger King & Shakespeare

I went to Burger King for a pre-church breakfast Sunday, and I couldn't help but notice that they served a small sandwich called the Hamlette (a ham omelette sandwich I guess).

I mentioned this to the girl behind the counter, and then I said,
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? To die: to sleep;No more;
and by a sleep to say we endThe heart-ache
and the thousand natural shocksThat flesh is heir to,
'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd.
By this time the girl behind the counter was looking at me like I had a third eye.
