They're 'aving a larf

Yesterdays news carried the little oddment that staff on the London Underground are to be given book s of quotations from Goethe, Ghandi, Satre and Shakespeare (Amongst others) to make their announcements more 'interesting'. Well, well, unintelligible and 'interesting'; should make tube travel a bit more than a crowded journey praying for the blessings underarm deodorant.

Why don't London Underground go the whole hog and theme journeys to said quotations? A little drama to add to the usual drama if you will. Imagine the following scenario, a tube carriage packed with commuters. Two friends meet, one is looking very unhappy.
Passenger one; "Hello, what's happening? You don't look so good."
Passenger two; "What's today's play?"
Passenger one; "As you like it."
Passenger two; "Thank goodness for that. A Shakespeare comedy. So only the usual delays then."
Passenger one; "You look terrible"
Passenger two; "Take my advice and avoid the Northern line this week, they're doing Faust. It's hell down there."
