P.S.A of the Day. Subject: "William"

After looking on Urban Dictionary.com
This is why Williams everywhere are so cool.
This is the definition of our name.

"The perfect boyfriend; someone who will stay on the phone with you just because, someone who opens doors for you, someone who makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside whenever you're near them. They generally are funny, and tease you a lot. But you never care.

A charismastic, charming, handsome, respectful and chivalrous gentleman of high upbringing. A 'Prince Charming' so to speak in many aspects.

An English name coming from the German name, Vilhelm, literally meaning will(desire, will) and helmet (protection). It has many variants in over 50 languages."
Now for a poem.
Hello World, my name is William
Not to be confused for the guy from spongebob, Billiam
William. Call me Bill, like Clinton or Gates
I defy standards, odds and fates
I may be mighty as William the Conqueror

...No rhyme for that but in spanish my name is Guillermo!
The women all love me from France, Lithuania to Russia
I guess it's because I have noble blood like King William of Prussia
Vilhem is here. Have NO FEAR!
I am the modern day Shakespeare

Thank you for reading ;)
