Hamlet in a nutshell

I found this little comic strip on TV Tropes, on the Kill 'em All entry. I often waste time on this website, I find it both funny and insightful. I have no idea if it is from another source or an original creation, but it is a brilliant summary of Hamlet. In literally three panels (four if you count the title one), it pretty much tells the whole story and thematic of Shakespeare's tragedy. Which lasts usually what? Three, four hours, if played in its integrity? For the record, it used to be my favourite of all the plays of the Bard. Now I am not so sure. But anyway, I love this cartoon. And I hope I didn't spoil Hamlet for everyone.
