Who is Kit Marlowe?

Why, Frances Bacon, of course. Everyone knows that.

K. A. Laity said...

HA HA HA HA! That's certainly, um, arguable, but it is not the only answer...

The Queen said...

Fabulous hat!

K. A. Laity said...

Innit though?! Such fabulous art -- and there's more where that came from!

Shakespeare, right?

K. A. Laity said...

Not this one -- although she could be Shakespeare's, er, sister...

There might be a connection to Mr. S. She does look like a Dark Lady.

K. A. Laity said...

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red ;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

In other circumstances, yes -- but not this time. Does the picture resemble anyone you all might know?

For goodness sake, it's She Who Keeps Running Off! At least, I think so...you apes, particularly in those odd two-dimensional elaborate squiggles, tend to blend.

Mmmm...bacon. (She's right, you know.)

K. A. Laity said...

She can't help it -- her presence is demanded in many places, as are her two-dimensional ape squiggles.

And Mmmmmmmmm bacon, indeed!

Are you suggesting Shakespeare could not have been a woman? Have fun with your weekend activities.

K. A. Laity said...

This one isn't; is nil one looking at the picture? ;-)

Hello from the Mass Turnpike. This stop has wifi!

Thanks, Patti!
