365 Days of Shakespeare

That's right – the Bard in a year.

304. Top five weirdest internet versions of “Hamlet”: Number 5

leave a comment »

The internet. It’s useful, fun, informative, great for stalking people, and completely and utterly weird. There was a good quote on the show House a while back that went something to the effect of, “if you have always wanted to reenact the Boston Tea Party dressed as an imperial Storm Trooper, you can use the internet to find the twelve other people who want to do it, too.” (I’m paraphrasing)

And, apparently, if you have always wanted to spawn a bizarre version of Hamlet using your favorite form of media, the internet is the perfect place to do it. Behold, the top five weirdest (and yet most awesome) versions of Hamlet available on the internet.

NUMBER FIVE

Facebook Hamlet

I absolutely love this. It is really clever and fun, and actually acts as a decent summary for those who are already familiar with the play. Those who aren’t may still find the humor in it as long as they know the bare bones of the play. Particularly nerdy readers will probably enjoy the things listed under “Birthdays and Events” and “People You May Know”. Facebooking Shakespeare’s plays isn’t something new, but I’m hoping it stays popular and that eventually all of his plays get this treatment.
