Oh, is that what "Roman fool" means?

A man playing Brutus paused and excused himself, saying "I seem to have stabbed myself" in Aspen during an outdoor performance of "Scenes from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar" on Wednesday.

"Actors normally don't use real knives...but I hadn't thought an actor might stab himself," the director said.

Brutus was taken to the hospital by Portia (nice wife) for stitches.  Who knows, maybe while she's there she can be treated for the whole "swallow'd fire" thing.
