Ask the Experts

Don't Make a Big Deal Out of My "Baby Picture"

by William Shakespeare

In response to the Folger Library's recent article, I've heard from a number of you about the "surprising" and "uncharacteristic" portrait of me that hangs in the hallowed Reading Room of the Folger. You can stop with the euphemisms. I know what you're really thinking: Shakespeare was one creepy-ass baby. I get it, I really do. In fact, the whole fuss has inspired me to learn Photoshop. I'm working on erasing all those allegorical weirdos except for topless Joy, clothing her in something cute from Lululemon and me in a cute Christmas onesie from The Gap.
