Going Shakespeare

Went to Stratford last week to see a production of Hamlet.

And that got me into a Shakespearean mood, been doing some reading on the Elizabethan theater times.

Did you know William Shakespeare invented more than 1,700 words such as: countless, champion, epileptic, fixture, hint, generous and rant.

He also invented the word "zany" which is extremely important because without that word we would be unable to describe our politicians.

Also, here's a list of the top Shakespeare movies, which oddly includes, Ten Things I Hate About You and Strange Brew.

Oh well, to be, or not to be: that is the question.
