It’s really too close to bedtime to watch anything paranormal-related. So what am I doing? Just having a Dead Files marathon, is all. It’s cool. The ghosts won’t get me. (I hope.)
the best is when you’re reminded that “nothing” is elizabethan slang for female genitals, so shakespeare literally titled his play
much ado about pussy
Ah, Shakespeare. Such fine and serious art. So serious.
I was an English major and our Shakespeare teacher told us this fact and we spent most of class that day discussing it.
My name is Juliet Capulet and I’m 13 years young and I luv my bf Romeo so much we’re gunna get married i luv him so much& we just met hehe xD I wuld give my life for him!
That’s it. That’s the play.
dude. no it’s not. Yeah, Romeo is an impulsive, fickle fool. But Juliet is smart as hell. If you really listen to the play you’ll hear it. It does these characters a huge disservice to only look at their age, and end. Then to decide that she’s reckless and dumb from just that is very rude (in theater terms that’s “playing the ending” and it’s a recipe for bad theater).
If we’re going to do this it would be more like this:
Romeo is the guy that has a name tattoo for every girl he’s ever loved. Sometimes he covers the name with something else when he falls in love again, but sometimes he doesn’t bother.
Juliet is the girl who studies really hard, and always does what her parents say, and hasn’t had any reason to rebel. She’s never been in love, and no one explained how her body works, so when she feels the first pull of sexual and intellectual attraction (they share a sonnet when they first meet!) she assumes that this is IT.
All her actions are driven by love (or her understanding of love) but her decisions are very rational.
No, spellcheck, seriously. I mean “bare” as in “naked,” not “bear” as in “giant and terrifying wild animal.”
