Like Shakespeare Only More Mysterious.

Amongst those who believe that the identity of Shakespeare is unknown, one of the most unusual evidences that "William Shakespeare" was just a stage name is the famous picture of him.


Notice anything strange?

B/C you are so perceptive, you noticed the double line extending from his ear to his chin. Proponents have claimed that the double line shows us that the person pictured is wearing a mask--you would have to be enormously fat to have a double chin extending up to your ears.

In the interest of titillating posterity I have had an ambiguous portrait commissioned.


Can you find the tell that suggests there is more to my identity than meets the eye?

Well, I seriously doubt that your secret identity is that of William Shakespeare.

But, if what you say is true, Lindz would've been yours, before the night was over...

*cough*

Maleah?

But if not who can blame you/her. It is just that she used to be so very faithful, and if not, and she is reading this, I am sure that I totally deserve to be ignorned. Even though I read your blog a dozen times a day and leave twice as many comments.

Anyway. Hope your cough gets better. I would write a sonnet to your health, but I don't think anything would persuade you.

hey. that's not me.

Frankly, I'm not that deep. I just think you look like Dilbert.

Since the line of your bottom jaw closely resembles the line of your hair, I suspect that you are, in reality, a totem pole. What other explanation could there possibly be?

Justin said...

Slag!

Maleah!

The simpsons!!!

A Totem Pole?

Dilbert??

THE SIMPSONS!!!!!

I am Sorry Sir J, I'm not Maleah!

You're just going to have to accept the fact that you have 7 readers instead of 6!

Lindz said...

Why do you have to bring me into this? What did I do?

Justin said...

lindz,

Ha, ha! You read my blog.
Loser.

Justin said...

MC,
I have 8 readers...unless you went back to using 'anonymous' to leave a comment on my earlier fashion post.

*cough*

Lindz said...

I read your blog, because there is nothing better to do when I am working. Oh yeah, and tell this mc character that he or she should probably get that cough looked at by a doctor, it seems to be chronic.

Lindz said...

P.S. Maggie just tried to eat the cursor off the screen

maleah said...

I'm pretty sure that's Dilbert.

And I'm glad I got a flu shot.

MC said...

This MC Character is a HE...
And HE is not Dilbert!!

To Sir J, the 9th fairest philosopher of the land...

My initials stand for "Mister Chaos".
I therefore prove to you that I am not Maleah, I am not Manservant Curtis, and I am not Lindz!!
I am your seventh reader!!

MC said...

P.S. My cough is cured!
You may all now come out of hiding!!!

Night Stranger said...

Actually, I'm Maleah. I just lurk about like a stranger in the night, like Edward de Vere who wrote the works attributed to that hick in Stratford, indeed like Justin who has an ego the size of Edward de Vere and like Frank Sinatra who was born in Hoboken.

Justin said...

When the wind is southerly I know a Maleah from a Mary Louis.

Night Stranger said...

And I know Jason from Justin and Wm Shakespeare from Wm Shakspeare (of Stratford).

P.S. I live in Hoboken now. Is that south of Cleveland?
