Oscar Wilde

At the moment we are reading The Importence of being Earnest,
which is written by Oscar Wilde...
Here are some of his quotes:

"Men become old, but they never become good."

"The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast."

"To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance."

What the Elizabethans laughed at...


In the old days in England, when the Elizabethans wanted a good laugh,
they often visited the Globe in London, where all of Shakespeare’s plays
were preformed. The comedies of Shakespeare often came in a form
that consisted irony, satire and most of all puns.
Because of the ticket not being expensive, the audience was from all

the social classes, and they represented the majority of the people.
Shakespeare were very fund of puns, which is a wordplay,

where you take words that are spelled or pronounced similar
but means different things, and plays with them in sentences.
An example of one of Shakespeare’s own puns is from
the first act in his very famous play, Romeo and Juliet:
Sampson: “I mean, and we be in choler, we ‘ll draw.”

Gregory: “Ay, while you live, draw your neck out of collar.”
The funny part from this act is that the first servant uses a pun,

but then the second servant pretends not to understand the pun.
The good thing about puns is that it is something that most of the

people finds funny.

Now to the humorous part!

My own very funny puns…

I used to be a butler, but found the work wasn't my cup of tea.

I used to be a ballet dancer, but found it too-too difficult.

Haha…
