Interesting, re: nunnery.  (Quick!  Let's look in the bound OED
before alga has a chance to dazzle us with her CD-ROM version . . .
here we go, first citation for use as "house of ill fame," 1593.)
Well it certainly makes sense, what with Hamlet acting wiggy and all
(anachronistic as it might be for the Dane of an earlier day speaking
in the hip-hop of the moment).

It also plays "ring around the rosey" with Nutria's naughty-nun
witches (nun-so-naughty).  Bravo!
