April 23rd is a day to celebrate Shakespeare because they think it is the day Shakespeare was born. They also think he died on the same day, which makes it even more impressive that he wrote all those plays, being alive for less than a day.
This year we celebrate Shakespeare being dead for 400 years. Now that I say it out loud, it doesn’t actually sound very nice.
In honor of April 23rd, I couldn’t pass up finally writing the much-anticipated (mostly by me) Crustacean Shakespeare I have been promising to write.
(Full disclosure: I did not actually write most of it. Shakespeare is responsible for 90% of the lines I used.)
And now, curtain!

Happy Shakespeare Day Everybody! To thine own self be true!
