Proof of Influence of FSM in Shakespeare

Postby Griffin on Mon Jan 09, 2006 9:55 pm

To kick things off:

Hold, villain!

O, sir, we doubt it not.

Establish speaker and play.

Other offerings eagerly awaited.

"Look like th' innocent flower,
But be the serpent under 't."
--Macbeth, 1.5.76-78

Here, Lady Macbeth is literally urging Macbeth to become a snake that looks like a flower. Anybody who says that this is a metaphor is wrong.

This passage underlines the predominant Pastafarian themes in Shakespeare's work. In this scene, he causes the witches to turn Macbeth into a snake shortly after the line is delivered. (It absolutely happened. If you don't remember it, you just weren't paying attention in class.) He is thus showing the witches, which symbolize the forces of good, turning Macbeth into an animal that more resembles a noodle than a human. They are thus showing Macbeth, in the last scene of the play (your English teacher made up the rest), becoming truly at one with his Noodly Master, because Macbeth fits the mold of the classical hero, who up to this point has been soley focused on converting Norway (where the play happened, and not Scotland) to FSMism.

By the way, y'know that whole bit (which your English teacher made up) about Duncans murder? Actually, Duncan was jealous and committed suicide to try to frame Macbeth. But that didn't work, now did it?

Beatrice Scratching could not make it worse, an 'twere such a face as yours were.

Benedick Well, you are a rare parrot-teacher.

Beatrice A bird of my tongue is better than a beast of yours.

Much Ado About Nothing Act 1, Scene 1

In this swift exchange Shakespeare is encouraging his crew to stuff their parrots in their mouths that they should speak the better for it.

"But soft! 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."
--Romeo and Juliet, 2.2.1-6

Here, Shakespeare masterfully uses the metaphor to portray pasta as the sun, and the empty dish as the envious moon.

Shakespeare is The Master of Metaphore and the clue is given in the very first line - what light - I'd say it's positive

Oh, of course: "What light"! Why did I not see that?

Jeez!

Richard of York ate pasta in Vain

Postby black bart on Fri Jan 27, 2006 7:36 am

'Now is the winter of my discontent, made glorious summer by this plate of ramen.'

Richard of York ate pasta in vain...( mucks up your rainbow colours).
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

...Men must endure
Their going hence even as their coming hither.
Ripeness is all.
--Edgar, King Lear 5.2.10-12

Here, after suffering a tragic loss of tomato crops, Edgar consoles himself with the notion that they'll come hither again next year. He wistfully remarks that to make proper sauce for pasta, the tomatoes must be ripe.

"Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look."

Yond Casiuss was looking at pasta, of course.
