Hamsters Get Schooled In Shakespearean Verse

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – They may be cute, cuddly, and noble creatures – but hamsters don’t know jack about Shakespeare.

That’s about to change thanks to an online photo gallery devoted exclusively to hamsters and where all of the images are accompanied by quotes from William Shakespeare’s master works.

The website – called LookAtThisLovelyHamster.tumblr.com – is the creation of a British guy who calls himself “Charlie T. Hamster.”

Mr. Hamster says, “Hamsters are noble and curious creatures but they are sadly unschooled in the ways of the Bard. The site is therefore an attempt to convey to the animal kingdom the importance of properly constructed iambic pentameter.”

By teaching hamsters Shakespearean verse, the human Hamster claims there’s no reason one of his furry little friends couldn’t play Hamlet on stage one day.

Mr. Hamster says his website also benefits humans because hamsters have the ability to reveal the essential core of their personality.

In his words: “If evil lives in your heart, the hamster will reveal that. In this way, they are the whiskey of the rodent world.”
