Shakespeare Scrabble

The Effing Librarian muses on how Shakespeare could liven up a game of Scrabble.  Because he made up words when he needed them, you see.  I like it.  It’s short, it’s funny, go read it.  “There, now it’s a word.  Triple word score.  I win.  I’m Shakespeare, motherf**ker!”

  1. This blog is really fabulous, and I especially enjoy all of the posts about your kids and the sonnets,

    I have a blog that I think you might be interested in linking to….it’s a history-related blog, but since I interned for a Shakespeare company this summer many of my thoughts tend toward Mr. Shakespeare (heck, my title even comes from Richard II!)

    There isn’t too much content up yet, but I have big plans. If you’d like to link with me, I would, of course, lnk to you. In fact, I’m going to link to you anyway.

    Thanks!

  2. Thanks, Amelia! Glad you like it (and notice a few more kids stories up today as a matter of fact :)).

    And yes you totally earn a link for being 18yrs old, getting a web domain that is a Shakespeare quote (Richard II, even!), and comparing Abraham Lincoln’s marriage proposal to Pride and Prejudice!

    Good heavens, girl, don’t they have videogames and television shows where you grew up?

    🙂 Just kidding, of course.

  3. thanks for the link. you know, I was worried more about the meter than about it being funny — I know it’s not standard, but I wanted it to have rhythm — and you can always get a laugh by saying, “I’m Shakespeare, motherf**ker.”
