Dear Magic Shake-Ball:
I have a theory. I think that the 7 billionth person wrote your plays. Think about it: "Anonymous" opens just as the 7 billionth person arrives on the planet. Coincidence? I don't think so. And I'm willing to bet that someone in Hollywood is going to agree with me. So, fess up, Shake-Ball. I've figured it out, right?
"Her words doth show her wit incomparable,
All her perfections challenge sovereignty:
One way or other, she is for a king."
(3 Henry VI 3.2.85-87)
Oh my God. I am a genius. I am going to RULE the Shakespeare universe. Are you scared, Stephen Greenblatt? Because you should be.
