I feel like we should be saying things like...

"Hey, you...guy. The dames, eh? Yeah, the dames. Stupid dames. You having any luck with the horses? No, the horses are all...idiots. You know, between the dames and the horses, sometimes I don't even know why I put my hat on."

That's how people talk in bars, isn't it?

en passant
Q: Hello! I saw you've been talking a bit about Measure for Measure recently -- I'm a big Shakespeare lover, but I don't know anything about this one. Is there a production (film or stage!) you'd recommend watching to start me off?

hahahahahahahaha jokes; literally none. i’m so sorry that all you can do is read it, talk to people who care (read: me.), and wait for productions to come to you (AND 3/4 OF ALL MEASURE FOR MEASURE PRODUCTIONS ARE TERRIBLE), but that’s…literally it. the one and only thing you might be able to find is from a timewhen the bbc decided to do all the shakespeares and it’s perfunctory and also terrible! don’t watch that! it ends happily! (spoiler alert: the play…really does not.)
