Small Basic: Silly Shakespeare Program


Welcome to the Silly Shakespeare program!

The way this works is simple. Just paste this into Small Basic:

 

TextWindow.Write("Please enter a verb: ")

verb1 = TextWindow.Read()

TextWindow.Write("Please enter another verb: ")

verb2 = TextWindow.Read()

TextWindow.Write("Now, please enter a noun: ")

noun = TextWindow.Read()

TextWindow.Write("To " + verb1 )

TextWindow.Write(" or not to " + verb2 + ":")

TextWindow.Write(" that is the " + noun + ".")

TextWindow.WriteLine("")

 

And then reply in the comments with your silly text output! We'll add it to this blog post and show it off!

From Eddie Lotter:

To a verb or not to another verb that is the a noun. 🙁

To sleep or not to LOL that is the lolcat. 🙂

From Ed Price - MSFT (I did one without thinking about it):

To flip or not to flop: that is the target.
