National Talk Like Shakespeare Day

Today’s National Day coincides with the anniversary of the Bard’s Birth in 1564.  Of course we need to Brush Up Your Shakespeare even if you Hate Shakespeare (Name the two musicals!).  He is truly the fountainhead of English Playwriting.  There is no escaping him in theatre so homage must be paid.  However, today’s Speak Like day is much harder than Speak Like a Pirate Day (September 19).  Instead of casually throwing in an Argh or Matey you have to speak in Iambic Pentameter.  Tough I am guessing even for Will of Stratford-Upon-Avon to do contemporaneously.
