Clue of the Day

11-word Alert: Our comments show up on the homepage sidebar, so prefacing any hint with a 11 non-hint words is the best practice.

An Old Category: These clues are from a category called “Critiquing Shakespeare” category. It was in the first round of the match played on 4/2/2012.

$200: This evolutionary scientist found Shakespeare “so intolerably dull that it nauseated me”
$400: This Russian writer & noble didn’t have much use for the Bard, saying his works were immoral, vulgar & senseless
$600: Of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, this 17th c. diarist wrote that it was “the most insipid ridiculous play that ever I saw”
$600 (Daily Double): When he described “Hamlet” as “a vulgar and barbarous drama”, this French author was quite candid
$1000: This 3-named Irish dramatist despised Shakespeare so much he wanted “to dig him up and throw stones at him” show

    VJ, thanks so much for the special birthday balloon for “my” Bruce, the musical notes are a great added touch. And a special thanks for the awesome clip that you posted! You are so sweet!

    Bummer… other than “Casey at the Bat” and a handful of nursery rhymes, “Poets” & “Poetry” are not categories within my bailiwick, so I would have struck out on this one! (And yes, “struck out” was used intentional as a reference to my favorite aforementioned poem. Cheesy, yes, but I couldn’t resist.)
    I’m guessing there might be one other poetry dolt competing tonight, so I’m going w/ 2 out of 3 for a prediction… Have a GREAT weekend, everyone! :-)

    VJ, this category is in your wheelhouse and I know you’re happy about this fj. However, when I was in college we had to study WW in English Literature & his LoG. I remember these words after all of these years. I guess because my classmates and I had fun with WW.

      VJ, btw we always had fun with “the flag of my disposition” because we found the wording odd English language. So we went around campus repeating it to each other & laughing. WW probably turned over in his grave. LOL
