Less Is Not Always More

Let me be brief: I hope my sharp wit entertains you today.

In Hamlet, Shakespeare introduced us to the following proverb, now famous:

Brevity is the soul of wit.

I conjured a play on Shakespeare's words from a play the moment I saw the headline pictured here. To wit:

Brief wit is the soul of with.

If brevity is indeed the soul of wit, we must be concise and must choose our words wisely. The headline writer would have been wise to choose with.

You wit' me?
