Comic #3154

1 Shakespeare: I wanted to write poems and plays! But there's precious little work for a playwright in your time. So I got the only writing job I could.
2 Ophelia: That's so sad. People should be able to chase their dreams and not end up in a dead-end job just to survive. Like my directing dream.
3 Ophelia: Mercutio, what's your dream?
3 Mercutio: I always wanted to be... a lumberjack!
4 SFX: Slap!
4 Ophelia: This is serious!

I'm not actually sure who'd ever want to be a lumberjack. Seems like a lot of hard work to me. And all that sawdust, and splinters in your hands... yich.

I notice the Wikipedia article mentions "lumberjills" too. Similar sort of coinage to the Australian jackaroo being modified to form "jillaroo". It hadn't occurred to me before to apply that modification to the word "lumberjack".
