also you know how sonnets 134, 135, and 136 all have a pun on the word will/the name Will/the slang for penis?
I have such a fond fantasy of Shakespeare stumbling home drunk one night at 3 am, then stopping in the middle of the street, clutching Johnson’s arm, and going, “Ben, Ben, you know what? my name, Ben, it’s a dick joke. my NAME. it’s a DICK JOKE.” and Johnson patting him on the arm and telling him to go sleep it off
and him stumbling upstairs to his room, sitting down and writing three sonnets in a drunken haze, then passing out with his face on a sheet of paper that, when he wakes up, he discovers is covered with repetitions of the line “but why wouldst thou wish another WILL”
and then passing the sonnets around at rehearsal the next day, very proudly, to much face-palming
An authorship controversy I can get behind.
This is basically the preface to Pauline Kiernan’s Filthy Shakespeare, too (she “translates” his name as “Prick Wanker”).
