Talk Like Shakespeare?

Another brilliant freaking idea from the mind of "Richard the Turd":
  • On Monday, Mayor Richard Daley is to announce that Thursday, William Shakespeare's 445th birthday, is to be "Talk Like Shakespeare Day," an occasion for Chicagoans to import the spoken words of the Bard of Avon into their everyday conversations.

    Because today is April 20 rather than April 1, we'll assume the mayoral proclamation is both legit and sincerely made. Soft! On Thursday, verily, haply we'll hear Shakespearean language in all kinds of Chicago settings. Alack! Prithee! Mark me well!

    At City Hall, Ald. Toni Preckwinkle (4th) to Ald. Richard Mell (33rd):"Foolery, sir, doth walk about the orb like the sun. It shines everywhere."

    Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, in impromptu statement outside home: "Thieves for their robbery have authority, when judges steal themselves."
Give us a day or two and our readers will come up with a few dozen Shakespearean quotes that will make you spew frosty beverages all over the computer screens. But in all seriousness - what the hell does this have to do with running a city into the ground via taxes, clout, crooked contracting and phone calls.

Mayor Daley can't even speak english. At times, he speaks in a tongue that reminds me of the possessed girl in "The Exorcist". Now we're going to do Shakespeare? How stupid.

This is nothing more than a distraction for the citizenry. It's silly! silly! silly!

PROCLAIM IT!
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; We would not die in that man's company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd,
And rouse him at the name of CPD.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say 'These wounds I had on the South Side.'
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Blue Shirt, Street Cop, Grunt, Police Officer-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And a Police Officer shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in Chicago now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon this day.

Ere we woo the day when the Short-Shanked nimble-mouthed
Lord Daley’s wretched hide is delivered by the Knight Fitz to be knawed at
Night by prison vermin festering in a dungeon cell, alone;
his womanly cries not answered by
His mushroomed shaped headed Chief of Constables, Weis,
Who will be sent packing into exile, disgraced, fallen, and universally despized by the Guards of the City, whose Hue and Cry will not be in distress but in excitement and merriment at his fall from the towers of arrogance, shortsightedness, and proof that to lead men, you must first be one.


Wow---I think daley's onto something here, Speaking like Shakespeare is funner than just saying I hope Daley rots in Prison and the drinks are on me when Weis hits the road.

City budget problems? Let's start by firing the PR flack who's paid good money to think this shit up.

Shakespeare, while Rome burns.

Daley really, honestly does see Chicagoans as children who don't know any better. His contempt for us is vast, immense...

Miles and miles and miles of that fencing -- it serves no purpose other than to A. need maintenance and B. keep fire trucks from getting too close to school buildings in an emergency.

Yeah -- whose brother-in-law owns the fence company? The same one who soaked the taxpayers to diamond-saw hundreds of miles of useless grooves down the middle of alleys?

Talk about make-work...

"Is it true that Shortshanks uses the kiddie urinals at Sox games?"

Only after the washroom is cleared and secured and the men assigned to the door turn their backs and cover their eyes.

He keeps looking over his shoulder to check, too.

Alas, (crying) poor Yorick . . .

I suppose you Shakesperian scholars realize that the proposal to kill all the lawyers was suggested as a preliminary step to overthrowing the government.

Riddle me this--can you honestly say that you don't know anyone who has been helped by a lawyer?

Lawyers are only needed because they made a need,dear sir. Go on your way and to thine own self be true.

A Few Lines from Edgar Allan Poe....The Poem is "The City In The Sea"

"Lo! Death (RMD) has reared himself a throne (City Hall)

In a strange city lying alone

Far down within the dim West(Side)

Where the good (CPD) and bad (IR#'s) and the worst(IR#'s again) and the best(CPD Again)

Have gone to their eternal rest.

God Bless The CPD

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in Chicago now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon this day.

Shortshanks and Shakespeare.....What a fucking lopsided comparison. One is a genius when it comes to the English language and the other is a fucking retard.

Who knew how many coppers knew Shakespeare????

I'll tell you what I know-police officers in general are a lot smarter and well informed than they get credited for. People think we're a bunch of dopes riding around for 8 hours. The public in general would be surprised. I'm not.

The groove down the center of the alley is put there when the concrete is poured and cured. It is there for water run-off. Seperations between slabs, whether cut or moulded are to keep cracks from speading.

Now alley, or street SpeedBumps that is another story. The concrete, asphalt and labor used to make those would be better used to repair and keep the street safe.

He's talking about the two inch channel carved in years after the alley's were re-done.
