You Know You’re a Shakespeare Nerd When…

You know you’re a Shakespeare nerd when…

  • … the Remember-Me-Button of your mail client makes you think of Hamlet’s father.
  • … you always order exactly a pound of flesh at the butchers. Not more, not less.
  • … you’re answer to “How are you?” is “Forsooth, I know not why I am so sad.”
  • … every time you type a WhatsApp message you think about how instant messaging would have made a comedy of Romeo and Juliet.
  • … you are in constant fear of losing your handkerchief.
  • … the bumper sticker on your car says “Honk if you are a Stratfordian”.
  • … you break up with your boyfriend/girlfriend because he/she thought that “wherefore” meant “where”
  • … you’re annual birthday speech starts “Friends, Romans, Countrymen. Lend me your ears.”
  • … you enter Starbucks shouting “coffee, coffee, my kingdom for some coffee!”
  • … you watch football you shout “you base football player” at your TV.
  • … your CV is in iambic pentameter.
  • … you are dreaming of finding Cardenio.
  • … you do not leave your house on the 15th of March.
