Who Was William Shakespeare and Why Did He Curse So Much?

Okay, so he really didn't curse all that much, and his curses are more funny today than they are insulting, but here is a picture of the man in case you were curious.

William Shakespeare was born in England in 1564 and died in 1616.  He wrote 38 plays (including Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and Hamlet), 154 sonnets (which are poems), and a bunch of other poems.

Here is a link to a computer program that creates Shakespeare curses.  Alvin and his father would love it.  Click here.
