Othello (Plays)

"You and Chip. Weren't you his date to the haunted house? I hear you went as the beast with two backs."

Shakespeare had a dirty mind! No, seriously. Translate most of his slang into modern vernacular, and it's a wonder it ever makes it into high school English curricula. In Othello, a reference is made to Othello and his wife, Desdemona, making "the beast with two backs." Think about it. Let your mind descend into the gutter for a minute (if it ever comes out in the first place). Two backs facing out...two fronts together... got it? See? Shakespeare was full of dirty, not-so-subtle innuendos, and Veronica rightfully assumes that Charleston Chu's girlfriend will know exactly what she's being accused of.
