Moment of Fleeting Brilliance

Some weeks ago, I replied to Dawn's situation upon waking up in tropical humidity and the power gone out. I'm still impressed how this little tidbit came out:

What would Shakespeare say?
"Whence in times of lack of coolness,
Get thee to a place of shops
Wherefore there art backup generators
To cool thy moist skin."

Maybe I should make this a series, or an advice column and write a short sonnet as a Shakespearean response and throw in some anachronisms and errant spellings to make it just goofy enough.

I'm impressed, Redbeard. I had you pegged for more of dirty lymric kind of a guy.

Ah, but if you remember anything about Shakespeare, he was quite bawdy. He wasn't all high-brow.

Rebecca Taunton said...

Very impressive. And a good idea too.

Sparkle Plenty said...

OHHHHHHH, yes! YES, you should definitely do that.

Tarry not!

Jump on it!

Get thee to a...oh, you get creative and fill in the blank--garrr, I be burned. HEY! Why isn't your pirate flag picture here?

Redbeard76 said...

Avast, ye mates!

(There you are, Sparkle - I just added it last night.)

Petra said...

wow - I am sure Shakespeare's rotted heart just jumped! Keep it up and we might have a zombie on our hands!

(Translation: very cool (no pun intended.) I like!)

After doing the ode for Drowsey, Olga suggested doing a limerick contest? The dirtier/funnier the better! Maybe thats something to do?
