Dr. Weller, an Eastern Washington University professor of English and Shakespearean scholar for more than 50 years.

Note to Hamlet, 2.2.324: "tickle o' th' sere"

Act 2, Scene 2, line 324
tickle o' th' sere: i.e., easily made to laugh. A "sere" is a catch in a gunlock; something that is "tickle" goes off at the slightest pressure.
