DOUBLE DOUBLE! Know Where These Creepy Words Originated?

Updated: Nov 26, 2020


Shakespeare  (1564–1616) has left us with a litany of famous words, but perhaps none could be as fitting for the month of October as these ones. Written about about an ambitious Scottish nobleman, and the witches three(also known as the Weird Sisters), who predict the rise (and inevitable fall) from power of Macbeth. These are among the bard's most memorable characters in this Shakespearean drama. 


Excerpt: BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE


(from Macbeth)


Double, double toil and trouble;


Fire burn and caldron bubble.


Fillet of a fenny snake,


In the caldron boil and bake;


Eye of newt and toe of frog,


Wool of bat and tongue of dog,


Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,


Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,


For a charm of powerful trouble,


Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.



Double, double toil and trouble;


Fire burn and caldron bubble.


Cool it with a baboon's blood,


Then the charm is firm and good.


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!


STAY BREEZY!
