I would it might Be hangers till then.

I’m a little obsessed with how little there is to this joke with the carriages and hangers and canons. Like, I get that the funny part seems to be imagining a guy walking down the street with canons hanging off his lips. That is the funny part. But it would be a whole lot funnier if the hangers were an aspect of the joke. If it could somehow also be making a hangman joke (a hanger being another word for an executioner – another way to say hangman) or if it were a dirty joke. To have the centerpiece of the joke be canons at the hip…I don’t know. It feels a little simple for Shakespeare. He is not wont to go so far for a one image joke.
