And in his brain, which is as dry as the remainder biscuit after a voyage

From As You Like It (2.7), a possible epitaph.

….and in his brain,
Which is as dry as the remainder biscuit
After a voyage, he hath strange places cramm’d
With observation, the which he vents
In mangled forms.

I swore there was a pun on ‘biscuit’ and ‘cramm’d’ until I remembered that cram was a Tolkien creation.
