Happy Birthday, Will!

Today is the 446th birth day of William Shakespeare. So go forth and speak as if thou art the Bard himself. Here are a few of the helpful tips for Talk Like Shakespeare Day:

  1. Instead of you, say thou or thee(and instead of y’all,
    say ye).
  2. Rhymed couplets are all the rage.
  3. Men are Sirrah, ladies are Mistress, and your friends are all called Cousin.
  4. Instead of cursing, try calling your tormenters jackanapes or canker-blossoms or poisonous bunch-back’d toads.

No less than Da Mare of Chicago has declared today Talk Like Shakespeare day, saying it’s not only the home of Da Bulls and Da Bears, but also Da Bard.
