Blogger's note: I don't really believe that anyone but William Shakespeare really wrote his plays. I'm just trying to be whimsical here. Please do not use the comment section to accuse me of being a maniac (though of course I do realise that accusing others of being maniacal is the main purpose of leaving comments on websites)
