With two major productions in New York City right now PLUS a new movie adaptation, Romeo and Juliet is HOT STUFF right now. But maybe Juliet is getting a little more attention, according to news from Verona, Italy, where her statue has become quite “disfigured” by tourists wanting to touch the fatal heroine…specifically on her right breast.
It’s hard to believe this ritual is supposed to bring luck. Romeo and Juliet were the OPPOSITE of lucky. Lovebirds, keep your hands off!
For a moment of adorable, check out these kids’ reaction to visiting Shakespeare’s birthplace – “Maybe one day people will want to study more about me when I’m history.”
Enjoy these comics, and have a great weekend! Do something foolish. I dare you.
And while not exactly foolery, this is pretty cool!
