The latest Shakespeare is Sir Henry Neville. I was half-listening to an angry exchange on the radio about this in the shower which led to the following attack and rebuttal:

Female voice: So how is it possible Shakespeare knew so much about diplomatic maneuvers?
Male voice: OK then. How is it possible Henry Neville knew so much about leather making, then?

Mark Twain adds: and how did he know so much about the law. And is Shakespeare even dead?
