"Shakespeare in the Bush"

was reading an article, for class, called "shakespeare in the bush" and there was this part where the researcher was trying to tell this african tribe about hamlet or something. and there was this conversation in the article that i thought was funny. keep in mind that he's speaking their language and changed some words so they'll understand hamlet better

"that night hamlet kept watch with the three who had seen his dead father. the dead chief again appeared and although the others were afraid, hamlet followed his dead father off to one side. when they were alone, hamlet's dead father spoke."
"omens cant talk!"
"hamlet's dead father wasnt an omen. seeing him might have been an omen, but he was not. it was hamlet's dead father. it was a thing we called a 'ghost'"
"what is a 'ghost?' an omen?"
"no, a 'ghost' is someone who is dead but who walks around and can talk, and people can hear him and see him but not touch him"
"one can touch zombis"
"no, no! it was not a dead body the witches had animated to sacrifice and eat. no one else made hamlet's dead father walk. he did it himself"
"dead men cant walk"
"a 'ghost' is the dad man's shadow"
"dead men cast no shadows"
"they do in my country" he snapped. (he was getting frustrated)
"no doubt in your contry the dead can also walk without being zombis"
