In my literature class, we just finished reading Othello. Was it good, you ask?
The short answer: Yes.
The long answer: Yesssssssssssssss.
Being Shakespeare, naturally he gave me some sort of inspiration. Like reconstructing my speech into thees, thous, and thines. Or better yet, reconstructing insults and threats into Puritan-esque phrases (something which everyone, at some point in their lives, should try).
Here's just a few...
Witty Quips of Genius and the Like (Or What You Will)
Shakespearean: Hold fast your vile tongue!
Modern: Get lost!
Shakespearean: Disposess your person from mine presence!
Modern: I will cut you.
Shakespearean: I shalt transfix my blade into your skin. (O happy dagger!)
Modern: In your face!
Shakespearean: Within the proximity of thine visage!
Modern: You're an idiot.
Shakespearean: Thou base fool, never before have I laid mine eyes on such knavery.
Shakespearean: O villainy! Thy speech weighest falsehoods upon mine ears.
I would use these in everyday speech, but the vast majority of the poeple at my school would have absolutely no clue what I was talking about. Then again, that would be quite humorous...
Oh Shakes, you make everything more fun.
