    Default stuff Hamlet

    So, if the question is, "To procrastinate, or not to procrastinate?" my answer is, stuff Hamlet, my procrastinating days are over.

    What does "stuff Hamlet" mean in the above sentence?

    Thanks!

    'I don't care about Hamlet'. 'Hamlet can go to hell.'

    In Shakespeare's play of the same name, Hamlet's famous speech beginning 'To be or not to be – that is the question' shows him agonising about making a decision.

    The writer of the above has firmly made his decision — his procrastinating days are over.

    (And it's not just that speech; the whole play is about Hamlet procrastinating. He's the daddy of all procrastinators! )
