Six Puns Day One Hundred Seventy Seven: Puns

Shakespeare wrote a comedy about the dictionary once — a play on words. This play was written for the grown folks at the time (well as far as we know it was–averages of the audience’s age were taken twice, in a process of double meaning) in an archaic poetic language where people dotted their r’s and rolled their i’s. It included many words–well, almost all of them, actually–and for this, Shakespeare faced several ad hominem attacks by his critics. As this was early in his career, he couldn’t yet afford expensive buffoonery–but he had plenty of cheap jokes.

    this is a display of punnery that I merely look upon in awe. When you were a child, like the great bard Shakespeare himself, you must have learned to play right.

    All the words a stage, And all the words merely players….They all have their exits, and entrances…..And one word in this time plays many parts.
