I like to imagine Shakespeare as the cocky bastard portrayed in this shirt. You can’t help but laugh at some flowery language using, cocky dude wearing that collar and rocking that hair. I also like that Headline Shirts mildly compare Shakespeare to Snoop Dogg in their usual hilarious product description, which I will now quote because it deserves everyone’s literary attention:
William Shakespeare’s Lost Sonnet
O! how much more doth beauty beauteous seem
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give.
The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
For that sweet odour, which doth in it live.
The canker blooms have full as deep a dye…
Hang on, cut the music for a second. Hi, reader, it’s Will Shakespeare here. You know, I don’t meant to come off as cocky, but this shit basically writes itself. I honestly don’t know what the big deal is. Do you know that I invented almost 2,000 words on my own? So I’m literally just making up words as I go. You know who else made up words on the fly? Snoop Dogg. You think history will remember him as a literary genius?
Yup, I make up a bunch of schmancy words for linguists to guffaw over, toss in a few “haths” and “doths” for the drama majors, and — BAM! — instant classic every time. Seriously, there have been entire college courses taught about stuff I basically wrote on the crapper. Tellin’ you, this shit writes itself.
I dig it. You can pick it up on sale right now for $15.00 at Headline Shirts. It’s down from the usual price of $19.00 because it’s their newest release, and it’s printed on a 100% cotton 30/1 blank.
