What do Shakespeare and online shopper Edd Joseph have in common? A shared love of literature at least. Joseph is a 24-year old graphic designer who recently purchased a PS3 console online for 80 pounds.

He has yet to receive it and after numerous attempts to contact the seller, he got frustrated and decided to take matters into his own hands. As a result, he wanted to send a text message that would annoy the seller and acquire retribution.

It occurred to him that he could copy and paste from the Internet into a text message, so putting his unlimited text and data plan to work, he's currently sending the entire work of Macbeth. It's estimated to take 29000 texts to send the whole play and he's currently on 22.
