Which Shakespeare play is the best?

For stupid topics only.

I've only read a couple, but I thought that Julius Caesar was pretty cool. Also, I like to sound like I appreciate literature more than I do (I can't stand most of it), so provide some info if possible, so the rest of us can quote it and sound like we know what we're talking about.

The Oddessey is better, Illiad is actually interesting. other than that and LoTR, don't read books.

I believe he wanted us to include some recommendations for mainstream literature as well, then again I'm Meta.

I'm currently reading A Clockwork Orange. I agree with what one of my friends told me about the book: it isn't a particularly amazing story, but it is really fun knowing all the made up slang that the book uses. Words like "horrorshow" and "viddy".

King Lear is by far the best shakespearean play of all time, if you've got the skills to read and comprehend it.

A Clockwork orange is alright. And again, my favorite part is the fact that it makes its own slang language.

Any cool quotes from it? I love posting Shakespear quotes on Omegle (site may or may not be work safe depending on who you end up talking to) to confuse people.

Here is the best conversation I've ever had on Omegle (Possibly Not Work Safe depending on your job). You don't have to read all of the Shakespeare quotes, just realize that all the quotes are from Shakespeare's plays.
