    Totally silly but awesome:

    This is the opening song to the show of ‘Slings and Arrows’ (which is good, look it up if you’re interested it’s too weird to explain)

    Cheer up Hamlet
    Chin up Hamlet
    Buck up, you melancholy dane
    So your uncle is a cad who murdered dad
    and married mum
    That’s really no excuse to be as glum
    as you’ve become
    So wise up, Hamlet
    Rise up, Hamlet
    Perk up and sing a new refrain
    Your incessant monologizing fills the
    castle with ennui
    Your antic disposition is embarrassing to see
    And by the way, you sulky brat,
    the answer is “to be”!
    You’re driving poor Ophelia insane
    So shut up, you rogue and peasant
    Grow up, it’s most unpleasant
    Cheer up, you melancholy dane.


    There is another great spoof on Hamlet called ‘Rosencranz and Guildenstein are dead’, its got Gary Oldman in it and I highly recommend it if you can find it.



    Yeah I’ve seen it. I’ve also seen the play live, which is much better and it’s hysterical! My friend who I saw it with made me a shirt with the best quote from the play on it- “Red, Green and Blue are real, yellow is a mystical phenomenon shared by everyone: Discuss.” And of course the shirt is bright yellow. ^_^

    Much love,


    I love Rosencranz and Guildenstern. Its so funny. I love how they can’t figure out which one of them is which and one keeps making all the scientific discoveries. ^_^ That is one of my favourite movies. We have it on VHS.
