Shakespearean Imagination

Well met, neighbours!

It's Wednesday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!


As I mentioned in my last post, I have been on holiday for the last couple of posts. In my travels, I saw several people with suitcases that were the size of small refrigerators, with names and addresses written on them that could be read at thirty paces. I had to chuckle, and then went looking for other amusing travel anecdotes… and look what I found!

Kulula Airlines, based in South Africa, has what looks like a really fun sense of humor. Case in point: two of their planes:

this way up


So in honour of keeping a sense of humour whilst travelling, today’s word is:

label : la•bel /ˈlābəl/ (noun)(verb) :

noun
- A small piece of paper, fabric, plastic, or similar material attached to an object and giving information about it.


verb
-Attach a label to (something).


Synonym as a noun: tag - ticket - tally - etiquette - sticker - docket - tab
Synonym as a verb: tag - mark


First seen in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night (written 1599-1600). The full text of the play may be found here.
