Terrible World History (Part 4)

The greatest write of the Renaissance was William Shakespear.
Shakespear never made much money and is only famous because of his plays.
He lived at Windsor with his merry wives, writing tragedies, comedies and errors.
In one of Shakespear's famous plays, Hamlet rations out his situation by relieving himself in a long soliloquy. In another, Lady Macbeth tried to convince Macbeth to kill the Kind by attack his manhood.
Romeo and Juliet are an example of a heroic couplet.

Writing at the same time as Shakespear was Miguel Cervantes.
He wrote Donkey Hote.

The next great author was John Milton.
Milton wrote Paradise Lost.
Then his wife died and he wrote Paradise Regained.

During the Renaissance America began.
Christopher Columbus was a great navigator who discovered America while cursing about the Atlantic.
His ships were called the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Fe.

Later, the Pilgrims crossed the Ocean, and this was known as Pilgrims Progress.
When they landed at Plymouth Rock, they were greeted by the Indians, who came down the hill rolling their war hoops before them.
The Indian squabs carried porpoises on their back.
Many of the Indian heroes were killed, along with their cabooses, which proved very fatal for them.

The winter of 1620 was a hard one for the settlers.
Many people died and many babies were born.
Captain John Smith was responsible for all this.

Well, maybe your version of history will turn out to be better in the long run after all is said and done, Marianne!  :sick:

Marianne Virginia

Lol, Virginia, I couldn't help laughing, when I discovered this collection of "mishaps"; I don't know if all these errors or confusions were invented or real; personally, I hope that most have been invented.

And I got some more of these "horrors".


Marianne Rooster

Lol, Rooster, that may explain the "whole story".



Wait a minuteI thought Macbeth was doing ok until he met someone who was from his mother's womb untimely ripp'd.

Marianne TheOtherTink

Lol, T(h)ink - Macduff, the avenger.

Did you notice that your link shows a tragic tale happening to neighbour a very popular slapstick parody ?


Virginia TheOtherTink

THAT is very intense, O'Tink! Shakespeare was in a dark mood for that one, albeit no less the brilliant for it...

@ Marianne, no I didn't notice the tale you mention.  But I think everyone gets different links, depending on their search history.  Or do you mean Mark 4:10-12?  If so, I don't know the parody.  :unsure:

Marianne TheOtherTink

Oh, T(h)ink, it is gone - no, it was not Mark 4:10-12; it must be on my side, it was: 


with Terry Thomas as "Big Moustache" (and he was starring in the movie "Make Mine Mink").

But I am not sure if I shared the trailer with subtitles in English:
