Shakespeare's Birthday, Again


Today is Shakespeare's birthday, or maybe not, nobody knows for sure! Like nobody's sure if he wrote all that stuff, or looked like those pictures of him, or if he was really Sir Francis Bacon. Please post your competing and unfounded theories in the comments section.

I heard the truth about Shakespeare is buried deep in Oak Island. The world may never know...

Two things:

1. April 23 was also Shakespeare's dying day, but under the Julian calendar, not in real life.

2. Somebody once offered us free tickets to "some Shakespeare play" being performed at the Kennedy Center; however, I am reasonably certain that Shakespeare did *not* write "Shear Madness." I'd pretty much decided that this was actually one of Bacon's, until you raised the intriguing possibility of Barky...

Having grown up in Stratford Upon Avon, and been subjected to the 'Birthday celebrations' plus having a parent that was somewhat fanatical.. I can tell you, it is his birthday, He did look like he had wind, and he wrote them all, but most of his ideas were old hat, so they were versions rather than shiny off the shelf jobs.. and if you live in Stratford your sick of the sound of his name.. shakespeare this, Shakespeare that 'Shakespeare country' etc etc.. he couldn't leave the place fast enough and who can blame him!
Rant over.. sorry.

Isn't Shakespeare frozen in a cryogenic chamber in the tunnels under Disneyworld? Someday we'll be able to thaw him out and learn the truth about the plays.

I thought Stephen King wrote all his plays...

I believe it was Queen Elizabeth I. Or Walt Disney. I always get those two confused.
