You wont believe this, but I was stuck between two names for the stinker. Henry 5th and Falstaff.  mainly because they both appear in more than one book........I know that Hamlet has the most lines in any one play, but not overall......Can you tell that I like Shakespeare.  Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Thanks for that WW, I've learned something tonight

On reflection, I maybe should have worded the question with a rider,
