Seussspeare!

xmas me
From Twitter yesterday, the #Seussspeare tag, mingling together the Immortal Bard and the singer of the Cat and the Hat. Some notable entries included:

Hope Dellon, with: #SeussSpeare "I sat there with Juliet./We sat there, we two,/And I said, 'How I wish/I were no Montague.'"

Anne Jamison, with: ""Is this a dagger?" Macbeth asked the air/ "I can't feel the handle but I swear it's right there!" #SeussSpeare"

Dave Wingate, with: "Lay on you crazy Scott Macduff, I hear your untimely birth was rough. #SeussSpeare"

Charles R. Kaiser, with: "I would not, could not kill the King. I would not murder anything. Green Eggs and Hamlet #SeussSpeare"

Naturally I had to join in. My contributions:

Oh Brutus. Would you, could you bury him? Would you, could you, praise him? The odds I sooth seem quite slim. #SeussSpeare

I'm Henry the Eighth I am; of course I'll eat green eggs and ham, once I execute some queens, Madame. #SeussSpeare

Unless someone like you murders a whole lot; it's not going to get better, Hamlet. It's not. #Seussspeare

But we in it shall be remembered, if that is we aren't dismembered, on this St. Crispin's Day, Now off! We have French to slay #seussspeare [This was, not surprisingly, the least popular of the lot. People just don't like dismemberment, do they?]

And finally, my masterpiece*:

I meant what I said and I said what I meant; Hamlet's got issues 100% #seussspeare

* Look, "masterpiece" means different things to different people.

Observation #1579

Finding a new topic of conversation is almost impossible after someone has quoted from the Latin translation of "Green Eggs and Ham."

*************

Mihi placent, O Pincerna!
virent ova! Viret perna!
Dapem posthac non arcebo,
Gratum tibi me praebebo.

You see the problem.
