Here’s another Shakespearean sock, this one inspired by the balcony scene from Romeo & Juliet:


What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid art far more fair than she
