"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

The Winter's Tale

This is my favorite moment in all of Shakespeare:

Antigonus just gave a dramatic, emotional monologue, and then this amazing stage direction:

Exit, pursued by a bear

Then a shepherd comes onto the stage, and acts as if nothing out of the ordinary just happened.

Ha! I watched The Winter's Tale at the Utah Shakespearean Festival a couple of years ago and I think I laughed until I cried as Antigonus was first chased and then eaten by a large man in a bear costume. Really Shakespeare??
