Cobbler: Nay, I beseech you, sir, be not out with me. Yet, if you be out sir, I can mend you. MURELLUS: What meanest thou by that? “Mend” me, thou saucy fellow? Cobbler: Why, sir, cobble you. MURELLUS: Thou art a cobbler, art thou? In this example, “mend” means “to fix,” but the cobbler uses it in a way that gives it a double meaning. Based on this interaction, what are the two ways that the cobbler can “mend” Murellus?
