coat-of-armsTomorrow is the generally assumed birthday of William Shakespeare, based on records of his baptism and the traditions of the time.  We celebrated the Bard’s birthday last year and six years ago, so if you find these questions less than satisfying, try those instead.  Links in the questions go to attributions in Barlett’s Familiar Quotations*.  Shout-out to Kimberly, who six years ago answered her questions in (rhymed!) iambic pentameter.

  1. If brevity is the soul of wit, how witty are you?
  2. When did you last play fast and loose with the truth?
  3. When did the green-eyed monster last rear its head?
  4. What has often required you to screw your courage to the sticking place?
  5. What’s a custom that you have found more honor’d in the breach than the observance? **

Thank you for participating, and may your weekend be as merry as the day is long!

* For those disinclined to link-clicking (I don’t blame you!): HamletLove’s Labor’s LostOthelloMacbeth, and Hamlet (questions 1 through 5 in that order).  Shout-out to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast on question 4!

** This phrase is often misused, according to this enlightening piece in the NYT.  Hamlet was saying that it was more honorable to breach (that is, violate) the local custom of carousing than to follow it.  It’s usually used to mean “more often broken than followed” or something like that.  Answer the question whichever way works for you, but I like Hamlet’s meaning.
