Shakespeare told dirty jokes? Say it isn't so!

So the book "Filthy Shakespeare" is hitting the shelves. Apparently, the book will let those not in the know understand that William Shakespeare was a populist who wasn't above using foul language, double-entendre, and dirty jokes in his work.

Now, anyone who has studied Shakespeare beyond high school already knew that, and those of us who performed Shakespeare knew it intimately. In fact, half the fun of doing Shakespeare is figuring out how to get the jokes to the audience.

Might be a fun read, though.
