"To Beastie or not to Beastie?"


I would like to apologize to everyone from Patron to the guy that designed MS Paint for bringing this into the world. I will not apologize to Shakespeare. He is dead. Is the guy who invented MS Paint also dead? God, computers have been around a while. Kind of makes you think, huh? If you’re dead, I rescind my apology. I don’t interact with the Spirit World. Got burned one too many times. How many of us have fallen for the ol’ undead girlfriend grift? I know more than one of us have been “Tim Burton’ed” as it is popularly known. And yes, I felt that both “Spirit” and “World” deserve to be capitalized. No sense in pissing off the dead. Clara, I still love you. I forgive you and your big bag of “I died in 1390” tricks. This is off topic. Please read Shakespeare. He has so little. He is dead.
