Note to The Taming of the Shrew, 3.2.232:
"my ox, my ass, my any thing"


Return
to
The Taming of the Shrew,
Act 3, Scene 2, line 232.
Perhaps this phrase is an echo of the Tenth Commandment:
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
(Exodus, 20:17, KJV)
