Quizlicious Wednesday: Which Shakespeare Drunk Are You?
Everyone loves quizzes, right? Shut up, of course you do.
And nothing jump-starts a Wednesday morning than a hardy cocktail of high-brow literature and booze, so I give you Which Shakespeare Drunk Are You?
Even if you find Shakespeare more boring than an emerald ash beetle or find drinking as distasteful as…well…an emerald ash beetle, there’s enough overlap between the two for even to philistine to see the Bard in a new party-animal light or the teetotaler to find poetry in the wino passed out in the alley behind the drive-through liquor store (and yes, they do exist). Kate Muir, of the Times Online, agrees:
There is even an internet questionnaire, “Which Shakespeare drunk are you?”, on www.quizilla.com. I came out as the cheery Falstaff, but Sir Toby, Prince Hal, Trinculo and Cassio (“A classic belligerent drunk”) are all listed. The quiz is rather rude. You must choose your poison: sack, beer, amontillado, etc, and then the sort of drunken insult you might employ, along the lines of, “Away, you starveling, you eel-skin, you dried neat’s tonge, you bull’s pizzle, you stock-fish.”
(Although I didn’t include Prince Hal on the results list, Kate, and I’m not entirely sure what you mean by “rude,” but thanks for the non-linked shout-out all the same.)
Unfortunately, Quizilla’s repost link doesn’t work, so you have to go to the site to take the quiz…and in case you didn’t click it above, here’s that link again–enjoy!
