The Daily Geekette

SAM_3363 This week at Daily Geekette, we have celebrated our most beloved aspects of William Shakespeare’s work.  Whether you like Shakespeare or not, if you speak English, you owe Shakespeare your gratitude.  We wouldn’t have so many words and phrases if Shakespeare hadn’t put them in his plays and sonnets.  Or knock, knock jokes.  Yeah.  Shakespeare invented the knock, knock joke  (See Macbeth).
