William Shakespeare RIP

Comedy of errors in Argentine TV Shakespeare mix-up

One man in his time really does play many parts, it seems, according to an Argentine newsreader who mixed up the author William Shakespeare with the first man to receive a Pfizer jab.

Canal 26 presenter Noelia Novillo announced that "one of the most important writers in the English language - for me the master" had died.

In fact it was his namesake, William "Bill" Shakespeare, 81, who died in a hospital in England earlier this week.

Shakespeare "The Bard" died in 1616.

Alas poor Yorick (er... Bill er... William), I knew him well (but not intimately)...  It seems like only yesterday etc...
