Shakespeare does Twitler

Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!
You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
Till you have drench'd our steeples, drown'd the cocks!
You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,
Vaunt-couriers to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,
Smite flat the thick rotundity o' the world!
Crack nature's moulds, an germens spill at once,
That make ingrateful man!


King Lear - SCENE II. Another part of the heath. Storm still.

Trump tweet if he could read. Hehehe

1. Humour at it's best, thank you Brits for the

gifts from Shakespeare.

2. We can always find a great analogy in literature...

...History repeats in the pages of our greats!

3. This one is good, too

Hamlet, act 5, scene 5

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


But the words are too pretty for the orange lump.
