Hi Everyone. Sorry, no post tonight. I’m taking tonight off and will pick back up on Monday with the ever-ubiquitous, U. But well, it being (as is commonly reported) Shakespeare’s birthday/deathday and it also being Talk Like Shakespeare Day, well, okay, here goes a little something. I am curious, though, about how do people in Great Britain celebrate it? Do they walk around with an affected American accent quoting the bard? Perhaps they have Talk Like Edgar Allan Poe Day, instead?
Rest Herb and remain safe.
Thank you, ma’am.

Well, if you can’t trust George Washington, who can you trust?
Had a good laugh. Thanks. Enjoy your day off. Rest
Love these. The one about the moon is my favorite!
Yeah, I liked that one, too.
I think I need to cry now….😫
Yes, it’s sad that those people try to use a fake accent and read Poe.
These are great Herb, and I did my Shakespeare post too early
Laughter solves many problems

Not out of line at all. I don’t think I’ve ever deleted a comment that was not a spam. I edited one a while ago and added some asterisks. You’re fine.
I just don’t want my outrageous self-promotion to come off like outrageous self-promotion 😂😂
What an outrageous thing to say!😅
How outrageous of you to notice 😂🤣😵
This is an outrage!😆
Odds bodkins and all that rot 🙃😉
I’m behind on all the blogs I regularly follow but you are not forgotten. As Beethoven told the disguise master, “I’ll be Bach.”
Very punny 🤣😎🤣
Hi Herb 🙂
Intriguing… Shortly before visiting here today I’d scheduled a post for Tuesday that makes reference to Chat Qu’éspire. The Universe is definitely trying to tell me something (I just wish it would use plain English instead of these veiled hints).
This Brit cannot recall having ever met anyone anywhere who celebrates the birth/death of that ancient ba’rd. I myself, on the other hand, am looking forward to celebrate the life of another great ba’rd shortly, to wit: Douglas Adams (on May 25th, Towel Day). And of course there’s this coming Wednesday to look forward to, although far fewer ba’rds, living and/or dead, are/were responsible for that particular franchise. (May the fourth be with you!)
lol. But I’m afraid my Betelgeusian affected accent is worse than my British one.
I guess Taking Tonight off counts for T too. But this was more fun. Now I am wondering if the British ever have any occasion at all to talk like an American?
I wrote something a year or two ago and one of my commenters said they could “hear” it in an American accent. And they have a wide variety of accents over there like we do, too.
