Shakespeare game
« on: June 27, 2007, 02:40:12 PM »
Okay, something in one of blue's threads reminded me of this joke I knew in college. 

Here's the setup:
A theater company with a serious Shakespeare fetish decides to perform a full season of the Bard's plays, six in total.  Sadly, they have a nearly nonexistant promotional budget.  They contact a PR firm about snappy ways to advertise and promote the plays without busting the bank.  After reviewing their budget and the list of shows, the PR people decide that the only option is to make a single billboard.  Unfortunately, they can't even afford a large enough sign to fit the full names of the plays.  These are the shortened versions that the firm came up with.

1. Wet - A Midsummer Night's Dream (TTT)
2. Dry - Twelfth Night (TTT)
3. Abortion - Love's Labours Lost (apriori)
4. 6" - Much Ado About Nothing (TTT)
5. 9" - As You Like It (TTT)
6. 12" - The Taming of the Shrew (GraphiteDirigible)

Each of those terms represents one of Shakespeare's plays.  What are they?
I was referring to your intellectual penis. Which is quite robust.

Jolie is creeping up on me.

Is it bigger than a breadbox?
Happy colored marbles that are rolling in my head
I put 'em back in the jacket of the one I love
Carry that velvet sack full of pretty colored marbles
And I'll ask you for 'em back, when I'm ready and done

I think #1 is The Tempest and #3 is Love's Labour's Lost

apriori wins the obscurity award for #3, since that's the one that no one ever gets!  Keep guessing on #1, though. :D

Guess I'll add the titles to the original post as people get them.

Absolutely.


Dry == A Lover's Complaint?

Except that there isn't a 3" option here, which makes me wonder if we have a ringer on our hands. ;)

Hah, im a cheater, I heard a similar joke with the inch things back in high school I think, but dont think there were any of these other ones that are in here... and I think my joke was 3, 6, and 9, cause we were in high school and had smaller penises :)

My Shakespeare is abysmal, but I think Macbeth is "Wet"
