Shakespeare at Large

"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar."
--Mark Antony (Julius Caesar, 3.2.74-7)


and--voila!--you've got [I COME TO] BLUE[BURY] CAESAR SALAD!

This is just one of the many fine recipes I learned about from a group of students at Hampshire College.

These guys started club "Shake-n-Bake": people gather for a movie and bring dishes that pun on Shakespeare's most famous lines! How creative is that?!?!?!

The Hampshire Shake-n-Bake-ers would love to see this club go national. I'm totally with them on that. Anyone up for starting a local chapter?
