Shakespeare: Inspired by Shakespeare

"Shakespeare: Inspired by Shakespeare." Modified from blakekelly0 et al. "kittens inspired by kittens." YouTube. 1 September 2008. Web. 20 September 2010.
You may have encountered the YouTube sensation "kittens inspired by kittens."

At the instigation of some students, I put together a variation: "Shakespeare: Inspired by Shakespeare." It's far sillier than most of Bardfilm's material, but I thought it needed a wider audience. Enjoy!

Bardfilm is normally written as one word, though it can also be found under a search for "Bard Film Blog." Bardfilm is a Shakespeare blog (admittedly, one of many Shakespeare blogs), and it is dedicated to commentary on films (Shakespeare movies, The Shakespeare Movie, Shakespeare on television, Shakespeare at the cinema), plays, and other matter related to Shakespeare (allusions to Shakespeare in pop culture, quotes from Shakespeare in popular culture, quotations that come from Shakespeare, et cetera).

Unless otherwise indicated, quotations from Shakespeare's works are from the following edition:
Shakespeare, William. The Riverside Shakespeare. 2nd ed. Gen. ed. G. Blakemore Evans. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1997.

The very instant that I saw you did / My heart fly to your service; there resides, / To make me slave to it; and, for your sake, / Am I this patient [b]log-man.
