Happy St. George’s Day! And Sad Shakespeare’s Death Day!

If you like slaying dragons and Elizabethan theatre (and I know you do), today is both St. George’s Day and the anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. You might consider doing your Google searches on the UK page, which has as its doodle St. George slaying the dragon (though why Google would position itself as the dragon rather than the saint is unclear). In 2009, Google attempted a St. George & the Dragon / Romeo & Juliet mash-up, though usually they have preferred non-Shakespeare depictions.
