He asked for malmsey

Lest there be any doubt that I was originally an English Lit./English History dual major, this scene Eryn staged in the bathtub reminded me of the Duke of Clarence's death in a vat of malmsey in Richard III. I realize that gives Richard III two humps instead of just one, but that just makes him seem all the more evil.

Don't I remember that it was also called a malmsey butt? That used to make me giggle and feel like I wasn't a real English major.

I had to wiki "malmsey." Good thing I don't keep up my teaching license.
