Feste is a master of changing language to turn meanings in different directions. He considers himself to be a master of double entendres. Take, for example, Feste's quip about living near a church:


No, sir, I live by the church.

Art thou a churchman?


No such matter, sir. I do live by the church; for I do live at my house, and my house doth stand by the church.
