"Two Gentlemen Of Lebowski"

What if Shakespeare wrote The Big Lebowski?

The answer can be found right here.

I was suspicious of the quality of the send-up before clicking on the link. Reading film dialog rendered in faux-Shakespearean English is not my idea of fun. Thankfully, this work is much cleverer (and funnier) than that.

Take these lines:
"Forsooth! This be a place
Of residence, and much a private place.—
O excellent marmot!"
Or these:
“Seest thou what happens, Laurence, when thou firk’st a stranger ‘twixt the buttocks?!”
Good to know the Knave still abideth.
