In the beginning, there was nothing.
That is, off course, excluding William Shakespeare.
|[Enter Adam, Eve.]|
And so it begins.
|Adam: Wherest art thou, dearest Eve?
Eve: Nearest to the tree of apple.
Adam: Aye, for what does the tree produce?
Eve: The tree produces serpents, those of which kind may speak smoothly and kindly.
Adam: For what cause does this serpent speak?
Eve: He wishes of me to eat an apple.
Adam: And you shall.
Things went as normal, except people talked in stuffy English and used mind-blowing metaphors and other figurative devices.
And so went creation.
As expected, language dissolved, and so began the birth of ebonics, the anti-Shakespeare. But that's a different story.
