Looks pretty interesting, check them out if you’re keen! :)

Fun Fact: Shakespeare was most likely the originator of Yo Mama jokes..although he may not have phrased it in that exact way.

Timon of Athens (Act I Scene i, 241-242)
Painter: Y’are a dog.
Apemantus: Thy mother’s of my generation. What’s she, if I be a dog?

and also more obviously in

Titus Andronicus (Act IV, Scene ii, 1762-1765)
Demetrius: Villian, what hast thou done?
Aaron: That which thou canst not undo.
Chiron: Thou hast undone our mother.
Aaron: Villain, I have done thy mother.

Boy oh boy, Shakespeare was a sly one with words wasn’t he?

Fun Fact: Shakespeare was probably the first person to officially use the word “u” in lieu of “you”. 


Love’s Labour’s Lost (Act V, Sc i, 53-54)
Holofernes: I will repeat them, a, e, i-
Mote: The sheep. The other two concludes it- o, u. 


So yes, Shakespeare was text-talking before you even knew what text talking was. He was that big of a hipster.

Fun Fact: Before Bieber Fever came and swept the world, there was something known as Bard Fever or Bardolatry.

Bardolatry refers to the excessive love of Shakespeare, who was also known as the Bard. It was coined by George William Shaw and those who idolize Shakespeare are known as Bardolaters.

Wow think we could get that to trend on Twitter instead of Beliebers? ;)

Fun Fact: Shakespeare started writing tragedies right from the beginning of his career!

Tragic Love Stories: Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, Antony and Cleopatra, Troilus and Cressida

His stories were also way more tragic and way more convoluted and interesting than Nicholas Sparks’s!

Bruno Mars said he’d catch a grenade for you
He said he’d die for you.
Are you swooning yet? 
Well, pshhhtt, Romeo did it 415 years earlier and believe me, Juliet swooned so hard she died too :| 

Info Time: Romeo took poison and died because he believed Juliet to be dead and he did not want to live without her. Juliet (who was faking her death) woke up and realised that Romeo had died and decided to kill herself to be with him too.

mysticara7 reblogged your photo: Fun Fact: Shakespeare was one of the first male…

There is no Countess Olivia in Othello. Do you mean Emilia?

My apologies, I meant Countess Olivia from Twelfth Night. I’ve corrected it, sorry for the confusion! :X

Fun Fact: Shakespeare was one of the first male writers to have strong female characters in his books. 

All’s Well Ends Well (Helen), Antony and Cleopatra (Cleopatra), As You Like It (Rosalind),  The Comedy Of Errors (Adriana), Love’s Labour’s Lost (Princess of France, Rosaline), The Merchant of Venice (Portia), Much Ado About Nothing (Beatrice) and Twelfth Night (Countess Olivia)

Shakespeare: standing up for Women’s Rights since 1592 :D
