Need help finding a t-shirt

My cousin use to own a t-shirt from "Green Eggs and Hamlet". I have been trying to find the t-shirt online but sadly with no luck. The t-shirt is the one mentioned in this post but even though I know it may exist in Stratford Ontario I am no closer to finding. I picked the person who made the post but still waiting on a response. Thought I would try here to see if people have any ideas. Thanks!

Green Eggs & Hamlet

Shakespeare's Hamlet reveals both a genuine (melancholy) Prince and a great schemer in the sense that he is able to feign madness. I've read it. And read it again. Still, I can't seem to pinpoint a place where we are are unsure if his words are part of the plan or just crazy talk. Can you point to me to a part? Also, what tipped you off? Thanks.

Speedy Revision?

Okay, I have realised that for my English Literature exam on Monday I have spent most of my time revising Blake (1/2 of the exam) and next to no time with Hamlet (the other 1/2 of the exam) learning quotes, key themes etc - we have read the play in class twice, the last time being about 4 weeks ago. Any help to make this exam go as painlessly as possible? I realise I may already be a lost cause. [more inside]

How does this riddle from "Speak Memory" work?

In Nabokov's autobiography, "Speak Memory," there is a puzzle of sorts. It goes like this (from pg. 70): "We subjected [Uncle Ruka] to a test one day, and in a twinkle he turned the sequence '5.13 24.11 13.16 9.13.5 5.13 24.11' into the opening words of a famous monologue in Shakespeare." I'm stuck, can anyone help?
