Shakespeare & the Blogosphere: Of Idiots, Scallywags, and Scoundrels
â€œLife is a tale told by an idiot â€” full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.â€ Macbeth Act 5, Scene 5
I spent 287 minutes writing and rewriting the lead for this post. For those of you who donâ€™t have a calculator close by or are short on coffee that is almost five hours.
The purpose was to try to come up with something so compelling you would sit up, smack the table and scream, â€œthis man isÂ Muellerific!â€
Unfortunately posterity will not record how many of you actually did so but if God smiles upon us the comment section here just might provide some insight into whether this is successful or if I need to wear a mask during my next visit to town.
This is part of a guest post that I wrote for Inkling Media. Please click here and go read the rest of it.

@DadDoes I expect that you could have done it in even less time than that.

Let me just say that I could have nailed that lead in 286 minutes flat!
