2. LOL! What, they can't multitask?

Apropos, but he don't deserve Will's words.

What did you think of them opening with The Tempest last night? Really wonderful, imo.

Yeah, Mitt, what has Great Britain made? Shakespeare, Dickens, Thomas, Keats, Yeats, Byron, and The Beatles. You know, things that move you. Oh...right...

3. I haven't actually watched the opening ceremonies yet.

Don't know if I will. We'll see...

If features of the ceremonies are driving the right-wingers bat-shit, then maybe I will.

4. Ah, wonderful, and too appropriate, my dear Aristus!

He sure is a stain!

I would have been here sooner, but when you posted this, I was on my way to the gym, and when I got home, I was busy banning trolls!

Thank you for your very appropriate quote.

9. I pored very carefully over the Falstaff plays, including "The Merry Wives Of Windsor",

looking for a line that was about an insult, and had the word "English" or "England" in it. No luck. But I figured one of the other 'Henry' plays would have what I needed, and I was right...

Hi, sarge!
