The Blue Screen of DRM

After takin' a swig o' grog, Roy Schestowitz belched out
  this bit o' wisdom:

And, in that article, a new term enters the Windows dyslexicon:

   and then the Blue Screen of DRM came up...

Unless hours were cups of sack, and minutes capons, and clocks the tongues
of bawds, and dials the signs of leaping houses, and the blessed sun himself
a fair, hot wench in flame-colored taffeta, I see no reason why thou shouldst
be so superfluous to demand the time of the day.  I wasted time and now doth
time waste me.
		-- William Shakespeare
