Ahahahahahaha. Apparently I'm not the only person who noticed this. (Last year, just before my literature exam, I wrote 'It matters not what Shakespeare thought; it matter only what the teacher thinks Shakespeare thought' on the board. Fortunately my teacher was nice enough to not yell at me.)
So. I'll just share this as discreetly as I can with my Lit teachers and laugh silently. Take that, teachers!
