originally the name of a shakespearan play. however, in recent times, a hamlet has adopted the meaning of a small ham sandwhich (i.e. more like hamlette just spelled hamlet)
I just got a hamlet from the deli.
A shakespearean play about the character of the same name who attempts to avenge his father's death. It would be pretty good, if it were not written in freaking early modern english. It has since been made better, by being converted into an episode of The Simpsons
. Written for the sole purpose of tormenting high school students. Taught by teachers, especially Mr. Newcombe, for the sole purpose of tormenting high school students. Not as good as it is purported to be.
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 sleep to say we end
the heartache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to - 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep.
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil
Must give us pause.
Getting so hammered and lit (High)
