Celebrate Shakespeare’s 448th birthday today and have some fun with Talk Like Shakespeare Day.

Instead of you, say thou or thee.

Men are Sirrah, ladies are Mistress, and your friends are all called Cousin.

To add weight to your opinions, try starting them with methinks, mayhaps, in sooth or wherefore.

God ye good den (Have a good day).
