I think this Shakespearean meme is funny on www.quickmeme.com and found it interesting. I like how they overlapped the modern day iPod and flat-bill ball cap with the caption to the NWA rythem in hip-hop. It also works well because Music(HIp-Hop) and Shakespeare's poetry can both use the same rythem. Lastly, I find it awesome how the statement used is 'transformed' into Shakespeare voice and it's actually accurate to Shakespeares history. -Eric Lo
