Come Hither, Cousin

Today is William Shakespeare’s 446th birthday, and more importantly, it’s Talk Like Shakespeare Day!

Hopefully no one will call me a “villainous abominable misleader of youth” if I tell you about the Shakespearean Insult Generator.  Go ahead! Call your friend a “puking folly-fallen coxcomb” today. After all,  YOU didn’t say it, SHAKESPEARE did.  It’s literature, people.

Try to find out which words were coined by Shakespeare, in the “Which Words are Will’s Words?”  game or play “Romeo Wherefore Art Thou?”.

Want a quick fix? Come in to the library and check out our DVDs of “As You Like It,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “The Merchant of Venice” or “Macbeth.”

There are tons of ways to celebrate – you can find more Shakespearean good times at  http://www.talklikeshakespeare.org/.
