What are the haps my friends

December 22nd, 2011: T-Rex's sentence in the first panel is a snowclone! There's a bunch of them here on Language Log, which is also just about where the word originated! NOW YOU KNOW


Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!

One year ago today: meanwhile, in tudor england: william shakespeare is having act 2 of romeo and juliet end with all the characters getting on a boat... that soon hits an iceberg!! in my comic, i mean. i dunno what's happening meanwhile in tudor england in real life.
