Happy 444th Birthday!!!!

Today is William Shakespeare's birthday!!!!

My favorite play is A Midsummer Night's Dream. I love the comedies. Here are a couple of my favorite quotations from the play:

"Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind."
(Act I, Scene I)

"My heart Is true as steel."
(Act II, Scene1)

In honor of it, I'd like to play a clip from
Blackadder. I think this would make my students happy, and out of frustration from trying to teach them Shakespeare, I think I wouldn't mind giving the bard what's coming to him, too.
