    It may mean something to the person who wrote it, but that sentence means nothing to me.

    That comment looks like something generated by a bot: just a random collection of words.

    Re: a lurid ethnicity of Shakepeare's court

    The most lurid ethnicity I can think of in Shakespeare is in Romeo and Juliet:

    Oh, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
    It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
    Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear,
    Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.
    So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows
    As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows.
    The measure done, I’ll watch her place of stand,
    And, touching hers, make blessèd my rude hand.
    Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!
    For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.
    However, like GoesStation, I have no idea what the comment means.
