Kinda funny when many people don't even think Shakespeare was a real guy.

Oh he was real alright - no question of that, but there's a school of thought that believes he wasn't the author of the plays and sonnets attributed to him.

More than likely he probably did steal some of the work. They didn't exactly have copy right laws back then. :w00t:

The case against him being the author is pretty weak.
