Speaking of Shakespeare (Literally)


Zounds! From that worthy curate, Father Z., we have received tidings that today is Talk Like Shakespeare Day. Come thou, sirrah! Be not a prating coxcomb! Hie thee hence, and visit the site! Stay thee not, thou whoreson zed, thou unnecessary letter! The event is sponsored by men and women, all merely players, known as the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, no doubt to praise the work of the Immortal Bard, not to bury him.

Yea, verily what manner of fortune is this? No more than two days hence, we have posted this treatment most comical of Richard III, that there is a day in honor of the Sweet Swan of Avon? And I almost missed it? O Great Jove! It makes me mad to think on’t!

One thought on “Speaking of Shakespeare (Literally)

  1. Well, at least its not mecha Julius Caesar al la Richard Appignansesi and Mustashrik Muhab. I checked it out and couldn’t make it through the first act. (And I love The Bard.) Imagine Brutus and Casius on street motorcycles and Caesar’s army with helicopters, if you dare! And the hair!?!I thank thee, no!
