Shake up Shakespeare with this humorous tale of the human reproductive system. You may know the story of “two star-crossed lovers,” but you haven’t heard a “tale of more woe, than this of Juliegg and her Spermeo.” Characters from several different works by the Bard come together in this play that is not only witty, but educational. If you have ever wanted to know more about how babies are made (or not made), there is no better way to learn than through tragic characters and iambic pentameter. This is a tale, truly older than time! *Bonus material from Emilita!*
Last night was a but a dream;
a result of a slumber so deep.
And as the morning sun sheds its light,
I slowly forget this foolish night.
To think there would ever be a time,
that I could truly call you mine.
But no amount of trickery or dust
can ever change to gold this rust.
As sleep dissipates from my eyes,
I find a new world full of lies
where love and hate are two of a kind
felt not only with the soul, but with the mind.

My girl has rambled on about Shakespeare for long enough. I don’t really see what is so great about the guy, he didn’t even write about cats. Here is how some of his works should have read.
To wake, or not to wake- that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to dream
Of mice and fish of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of tunas,
And by clawing end them.
Out, damned mouse! out, I say!
Birds, squirrels, chipmunks, lend me your ears;
I come to watch you, not to eat you.
Today is indeed an international holiday, my friends. Today we celebrate the birth, and death, of one the greatest men to walk this earth. Or did he? There are skeptics out there who question the validity of Mr. Shakespeare. Did this person really exist? Did that person write his works or simply take credit for the work of another? All questions aside, the truth is that someone wrote the great works which we cherish today. I mean, they can’t have been written by a room of monkeys, right?
Since today is a holiday in my book, I figured I would take it easy today and share with you some phrases that would not exist if not for The Bard.
- All that glitters isn’t gold (Merchant of Venice)
- It’s Greek to me (Julius Caesar)
- The lady doth protest too much (Hamlet)
- Eat out of house and home (Henry IV)
- Give the Devil his due (Henry IV)
- To thine own self be true (Hamlet)
