Yesterday, I and my classmates wrote a Shakespearean sonnet in AP English, at the prompting of our teacher. Clearly, she wanted us to get into the spirit of Valentine's Day.
Being the philophobe I am, however, my sonnet deviated somewhat from the suggested (insert Latin phrase I can't put my finger on here)....

Glorigifications abound in the mist;
I would really like a salad ‘bout now.
If this cantaloupe heeds not my green grist,
I shall hokey-pokey with a brown cow.
Hark! The cantaloupe heeds said green grist. I
shall not hokey-pokey. What a shame. But
that means the world will end at midnight high!
I would really like a sal—OWW! MY BUTT!
Who shot this accursed pellet gun at
my posterior? The nerve of some folks.
Go fetch my plastic lightsaber (that
seems to be missing its batteries), folks!
I shall fend them off by sticking it up
my nose and to Port’gal I must fly up!
