Happy B-Day, Shakey!
It's Shakespeare's birthday! (Well, actually, it's the day he died, but we guess they celebrated things differently in olden times.) We're sure that must be like a national holiday in England or France or wherever he's from. He's totally the GOD of poetry! He wrote entire plays in that iampic pentagon or whatever you call it.This is the man who put Leonardo Dicaprio and that My So-Called Life chick in the same play! He wrote the best love stories ever written in his own writing! Without a laptop!
He also wrote some sonnets, whatever those are, and some of them were to a "fair youth," maybe one like our Leo here. We know about that because of that LFO song that goes, "When you take a sip you buzz like a hornet, Billy Shakespeare wrote a whole bunch of sonnets-- New Kids On The Block had a bunch of hits, Chinese food makes me sick, and I think it's fly when girls stop by for the summer..." Remember that song? That's totally poetic, because it doesn't make sense, like all good poetry.
