In Which Hyperbole falls TRAGICALLY SHORT (italics mine)

The Groupon Guide to: William Shakespeare

Plenty of fancy antique words show up in William Shakespeare's plays. To help shine a light on this forgotten (FORGOTTEN!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!) scribe, here is a glossary of some of his most commonly used terms:

"What fools these mortals be!" = I pity the fools (Haha, you got to misquote Shakespeare AND Mr. T in one fell swoop. GOOD FOR YOU)
"Out, damn'd spot!" = Get out, Spot. Tracking mud all over Mr. Shakespeare's new couch! Bad dog! Look at him. He knows what he did. (Wrong.)
"Work is for people who don't know how to fish." = Work is for people who don't know how to fish. (Clever. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS ONE IF IT DIDN'T NEED TO BE CLARIFIED)
"To be, or not to be: That is the question." = Have you seen Inception? (This has nothing to do with the plot of Inception. HAVE YOU SEEN INCEPTION!?)

(Please do me a favor and kill me now. I'm begging you. I would rather be dead and forgotten LIKE SHAKESPEARE EVIDENTLY IS than have to continue in a world where ANY of these words are considered "fancy" and "antique". Also, none of these would be considered "terms" nor are they Shakespeare's most commonly referenced. You are brain dead. WE ARE ALL BRAIN DEAD.)
