Well this explains a lot. All those years struggling to comprehend his messed up tragedies, unfunny comedies and complex dialogue suddenly makes perfect sense. It seems entirely possible that the reason for his plays, which are a favorite for evil literary and English teachers the world over, were so complex is because he may have been as high as a kite. What makes us say that? Shakespeare’s clay pipe contained evidence of weed, crack and even acid.
Whoa, hold up one minute. Are we really suggesting that because Shakespeare’s clay pipe contained traces of weed, acid and crack that he was a stoner? Not really, but where there’s smoke, there is fire, or in Shakespeare’s case, maybe giggles, laughter and the munchies. So how do we know this to be the case? He did die about four hundred years ago, surely any evidence would be long gone by now.
