The manuscript found in Bob’s locker

A word to the wise.

It should go without saying, but just in case. Please remember that just as Bottom observed “The eye of man hath not heard, the ear of man hath not seen, man’s hand is not able to taste, his tongue to conceive, nor his heart to report what my dream was.” The information in theses texts dates from times of yore and should be treated as such, use with discretion.

When reading this material, as they say in the classics, if in doubt ASK! We will be more than happy to try and sort things out to the best of our abilities. Ta
