Talk Like Shakespeare Day


But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?  It is an ear, and Manny is the sun.



Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.
Oh, I sigheth when I behold Manny!


Devouring Time, blunt thou the lion's paws...
But why dost Manny stretcheth out his leg?


Well then...
Fare You Well, Oh Manny!
I'll not importune you with a tedious leave!

Hover over each photo, for more Shakespearian fun!

Ha! Very poetic - except for Manny, who seems more melodramatic than poetic.

The Creative Cat said...

Let Hercules himself do what he may,
The cat will mew and dog will have his day.
And they will all speak like Shakespeare
on this grandest of days.
