I always try to publish articles that are interesting and informative at the same time. Just before weekend, I want to enjoy a couple of lines that resemble to the ones of Shakespeare’s. Here is a very funny chart. You just pick one phrase from each column and combine them together. The outcome sounds like wonderfully embellished lines of the sonets… They generally do not mean something beautiful but give it a try just for fun 🙂
In Turkey, if your field is Foreign Languages in university, you are supposed to study English and American Literature. I took many courses about literature, poetry and Shakespeare. That’s why I wanted to share this with you; this totally amused me when I saw it. Please do not take it as an insult by the way 😦
I also thank Chris Seidel for this great post. I cannot give the link because I came across this on Stumbleupon, I tried to reach to the link but it just did not work… All I could find was the name of the publisher, Chris 🙂
