Friday Funny: Courtesy of Popeye the Sailor and Bluto

I haven’t posted a Friday Funny in a while but this one came across my desk and there’s nothing like a good classic. In honor of Shakespeare’s most tragic love story, here is a little pre-show weekend fun: Popeye the Sailor, Olive Oyl, and Bluto in Shakespearian Spinach Epidosde # 76 (January 19, 1940). If only Juliet had had some spinach!

Have a great weekend. Go see some Shakespeare!

Friday Funny – The Beatles in A Midsummer Night’s Dream

On April 28, 1964, a few months after they appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, the Beatles performed a spoof of the Mechanicals’ skit from A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the British variety show “Around the Beatles.” Here are the boys celebrating Shakespeare’s 400th birthday, with Paul as Pyramus, John as Thisbe, George as the Moon and Ringo as the Lion.

Don’t you wish you could have seen this one live! Have a great weekend all.

This is just too good not to be the Friday Funny.
And wait til you see the dance.
