Romeo, Romeo, Moo for Me Romeo

I have uncovered an interesting new twist on Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet. It seems that Shakespeare changed the story to make it more interesting to the humans. The name, Romeo, is an anagram for Mooer. Since cows moo, that means that Romeo was not a human, but he was a cow. Juliet has the word, lie in her name, which means that she was a liar. She lied to her parents about Romeo and when they found out, they got mad, and forbid her to see him again. They were upset because he was a cow and not a bull. Of course, the kids didn't listen and they continued to see each other without her parent's consent. Eventually, they ran off and joined a farm, where they lived happily ever after. It is a shame that Shakespeare got the story so wrong. I guess he wanted it to be more dramatic. The next time you see the play, remember that Romeo and Juliet did live happily ever after just like they were supposed to. In fact, they were the couple that inspired the story of Beauty and the Beast.
