“Did Hamlet not tell Oephelia “BYE, BYE, BYE,” when he sent her to that nunnery?”, Eitan Levine asks?

Even though I wasn’t a huge N’Sync fan back in the day, I can appreciate a good mashup.

What I wouldn’t give, though, for a nice Bell Biv Devoe + Shakespeare tune. Anyone feel up for it?


Quiz time!!

If you are looking for a good quiz, the Guardian has one called “Shakespeare and the Simpsons.”

I got a six out of ten my first time through, but I’m pretty sure I got the Shakespeare question right.

You know who shot stabbed killed this guy, right?


If you are on Pinterest (I am!), the Folger library has a great board full of quotes.

This quote makes me laugh every time, if only for its breathtaking hope and Prospero’s wry, worldly response: “Tis new to thee.”

There’s tons of Shakespeare fun happening on social media, so have a little fun while you’re checking your ‘books, ‘grams, and tweets.

Till next time –

All that glisters is not gold!
