The 10 Best Dad Jokes in Shakespeare

Elodie/SparkNotes

Credit:

Othello, Act 3, Scene 4

Here, the clown is highlighting the shortcomings of the English language by pointing out that “lie” could mean “sleep,” but it could also mean “deceive.” 

Alternate scene: Desdemona asks, “Where does Cassio sleep?” to which the clown simply replies, “Over there.” End of conversation.
