Last year, in an effort to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, the website ShakespeareGeek came up with an ingenious idea. The site invited readers to merge the works of the world’s two greatest poets– the Bard and Dr. Seuss-in 140 characters or less, and then post the couplets under the Twitter hashtag #SeussSpeare.If you have doubts about how well the styles and stories blend together, here are just a few of our favorite examples:
• I will not kill him with a sword. I will not kill my Scottish lord. I will not stab him in the back. I do not want to, Lady Mac.
• Did you hide him here, or there? I hid Polonius under the stairs.
• He meant what he said and he said what he meant, faithful Iago’s word is one hundred percent.
