Shakespearean LOL Cat

 

 

 

 

I chose to complete the Shakespearean LOL Cat assignment!

This is my cat Scratch, sitting in his favorite guard spot by the bird feeder, taunting the birds!

The quote is from Shakespeare, Taming of the Shrew, Scene I.

I’d rather hear a dog bark too…

This is not the ds106 assignment that I really wanted to do; however, the first one that I did, I did the wrong way.  Because I was running out of time, I went w/ the Shakespeare LOLcat.  People seem to like cats…I am not a big fan though.  But I do like dogs, and I remembered this line from Beatrice in the play Much Ado About Nothing, which mentions dogs, so I went with it.  If I could go back and do this assignment again, I’d do the Album cover.  That was pretty cool…I started it, but we started to move on, so here is my LOLcat.

Shakespearean LOLcat

I decided to choose this picture of a cat with a pizza on its head because it is adorable in a twisted kind of way.  I tried to imagine what the cat would say to itself after seeing this picture.  I chose Shakespearean Sonnet 38.  I am a pet lover and I know how hard it is to resist doing ridiculous things that somehow seem cute when done but in reality, its just us being silly.

Blog Post #3

For my third blog post I chose the Shakespearean LOLcat. This assignment asks you to get a picture of a cat and a quote by Shakespeare and put the two together for comedic effect. Here is what I came up with.

shakespeare memecatI used this picture because it shows one cat already stuck, with another trying his best to get stuck in the box, while the third cat looks on curiously. The quote was taken from Shakespeare’s play As You Like It which I feel illustrates what is happening in the picture quite well as we have two cats who fancy themselves to be genius adventurers while the third looks on, trying to comprehend what his idiot siblings are trying to accomplish.

The instructions for this assignment were to take an image of a cat and superimpose a Shakespearean quote over it. I initially wanted to use something from Taming of the Shrew since that play has so many good stand alone quotes, but in the end I decided to stretch the “rules” of the assignment a little by using more than one photo, since when I read this quote I really felt like it fit cats perfectly. I guess I ended up “remixing” the assignment instead of just completing it.
