Shakespeare memes

The story of how this post came to be: I was making my post from two weeks ago (six word memoirs and sonnets with a twist) when I found these memes on Pinterest.

ps

Which one do you think the best one? The You egg! Stab. and the tree branches are hilarious, and there’s also something about the dry humor of the Caesar salad one, but I’m going with Mercutio’s line because it would be so funny to use it in a normal conversation.
Have you read any of Shakespeare’s plays? I read parts of Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet last year and then did the same for Henry IV Part I this year.
Reading Shakespeare is kind of a sad experience because I know it’s good, but I still don’t really get what I’m reading. Like during R&J, thinking about all the threads of the plot made me both awestruck and jealous of Shakespeare, but that same feeling never appeared while I was actually reading. This quote from Fish in a Tree (AKA my third favorite book of all time) fits what I’m trying to say perfectly: “But I still can’t read it by myself. It’s like having a gift that’s locked in a glass box.” Am I right?
We also watched the movies of all three. For R&J, we watched the old 1968 version where the star-crossed lovers were actually teenagers, and the Henry IV adoption had Tom Hiddleston in it.

P.P.S. For more hilariousness, science jokes and people explain slang.

  1. I like the Caesar one and the past tense of William Shakespeare. 🙂
    I have read Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Twelfth Night, and Richard III. I think. Maybe there was another one? But I don’t recall. Hamlet was really the only one I enjoyed, but really reading Shakespeare isn’t my thing. It was written to be performed, not read, so it’s much better to watch.
    I do love that Shakespeare made up his own words. 😉

    1. I don’t know why that’s never crossed my mind- that reading Shakespeare is not the end goal he wanted. Hm, that makes me feel better. Thank you for saying that!
      Haha yes, and I think that the best part is that they’ve stuck around. I can make up words too, but they won’t be used by millions of people.

  2. I haven’t read any Shakespeare’s plays… Number one, the old-style English is challenging for me and number two, I’m not used to play scripts. That said though, I’ve recently downloaded R&J! Let’s see if I get through that one… lol
