I'm currently putting off shoveling myself out of the driveway as long as possible. (I must have the WORST snow plow guy in the state.)
"... the "homage," which involved grafting the plot
of a Shakespeare play or some similarly pantheonic
work over a contemporary setting, thereby proving
the writer had read his/her classics and was
therefore worthy of our attention and esteem but
also wholly overlooking the small fact that he/she
was too devoid of originality to tell a story that
he/she had actually, you know, created."
ROFL. Made me laugh today. Wanted to share.
Okay, I really just wanted to take a break from shoveling. Don't make me go back out there?! Where is my snow plow guy?!
