Mya Gosling, creator of goodticklebrain.com, has come up with yet another ingenious way to squeeze Shakespeare into pop culture: match teams in the World Cup to Shakespeare’s plays! I have no knowledge of the World Cup, but I still say it’s brilliant. Study the handy Shakespeare-team key here, and then move on to her further analysis in the group posts. I’m rooting for Bosnia and Herzegovina, because the Windsor Falstaff always gets shit for not being quite as dignified (!) as the Lancastrian Falstaff. Plus The Merry Wives of Windsor features smart, kick-ass, plot-hatching matrons. Go, middle aged women of Windsor!
Mighty Tiny Bill would be proud of you, Mya! Except that he’s still languishing away in his Original Packaging. And he’s not coming out until he stops calling me a stinking stewed prune. (Really, he’s just mad that it’s hotter than his buck-basket in here today. But a girl has to defend herself against accusations of prunehood…)
