Hey, guess what? It’s William Shakespeare’s birthday today. Damn right. In honor of Mr. Billy Shakes, my sister sent me this online quiz today, testing one’s knowledge of The Bard of Avon’s life and times. Pretty fun. She scored 5 out of 10. I scored 8 out of 10. See how well you do.
And pay tribute to The Western Canon’s greatest dramatist by saying something Shakespearean. Like this…
“Exeunt, pursued by a bear.”
(The best stage direction of all time – Tennessee Williams, Eugene O’Neill, and Shaw – eat your hearts out!)
