Julius Caesar

Shakespeare: the funny bits

Scene: Rome. Men all in flames do battle in the streets, and surly lions wander around the Capitol, glaring at onlookers. Graves open and give up their dead, ghosts shriek and gibber, owls perch in the market-place at midday and the skies are a tempest of fire and lightning.

Enter Brutus, with a letter.

Brut. The exhalations whizzing in the air
Give so much light that I may read by them.

Opens the letter and reads.

  1. Luminescent exhalation pee. Huzzah!

  2. I’ve been reading Titus Andronicus for class. Here is my favorite part:

    AARON. Zounds, ye whore! Is black so base a hue?
    Sweet blowse, you are a beauteous blossom sure.
    DEMETRIUS. Villain, what hast thou done?
    AARON. That which thou canst not undo.
    CHIRON. Thou hast undone our mother.
    AARON. Villain, I have done thy mother.
