Subject:        A Fifth Grader's View of Shakespeare?

A friend sent me an email containing excerpts from History test answers
by 5th and 6th graders in Ohio. Among them was this gem:

"The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespeare. He was
born in the year 1564, supposedly on his birthday. He never made much
money and is famous only because of his plays. He wrote tragedies,
comedies and hysterectomies, all in Islamic pentameter."

Brightened up my day!

Cheers,
Rainbow Saari
