Talk Like Shake­speare Day cards! Yes! Get them!

For­sooth! Today is Talk Like Shake­speare Day!
The best of all the days through­out the year!
When all of us who love the Bard will say
“To be, or not to be?” in voic­es clear!
The works of William Shake­speare we shall read
and gai­ly plays and poems shall recite;
until the words ring loud­ly in our heads
and peo­ple speak in iambs day and night.
Of oth­er days may oth­er poets sing,
I’ll keep my words for April twen­ty-third.
For tru­ly, William Shake­speare is the king
of all the Eng­lish lan­guage, says this nerd.
If you be not a faith­ful fan of his,
Then kind­ly up a rope please take a whiz!

In all seri­ous­ness, though, April 23rd is Talk Like Shake­speare Day.  It’s because he was born (prob­a­bly) and died on April 23rd. Same day, dif­fer­ent years, obvi­ous­ly.  I don’t feel the need to tell you any more facts about Shake­speare, as he is prob­a­bly the most well-known writer the Eng­lish lan­guage has yet pro­duced and if you’re that inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about him, you can read his Wikipedia page.  Fas­ci­nat­ing stuff, actu­al­ly.

What I am going to do is post a pic­ture and a video which are both amaz­ing and Shake­speare relat­ed, and leave it at that.
