William Shakespeare’s grave, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK

I don’t go around taking photo’s of famous writer’s final resting places all the time. But it is the closest I’m going to get to meeting these guys, so think of them as fan photos.

His epitaph reads:

Good frend for Iesvs sake forbeare,
To digg the dvst encloased heare.
Bleste be ye man yt spares thes stones,
And cvrst be he yt moves my bones.

Which translates as:

Good friend, for Jesus’ sake forbear,
To dig the dust enclosed here.
Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
And cursed be he that moves my bones.

Because he may be dead, but that doesn’t mean you can screw around with The Bard.
