Kid Quotes: Pure Shakespeare

And now for something completely different:

Last night my 13 year old daughter Maisy called me up and told me she learned about Shakespeare at the musical theater camp she’s attending.

“Did you know he actually invented 3000 words, Dad” she said, excitedly.

“I bet he did. He was an amazing writer” I said.

She responded, “Yeah, he invented the word puke!”

Puke. Pure Shakespeare.
