In Focus: Shakespeare Insult Generator
Happy 450th birthday, William Shakespeare!
We’re celebrating the esteemed bard with The Shakespeare Insult Generator, a collection of hundreds of Shakespeare’s most pointed barbs. Readers can combine them in creative and hilariously stinging ways–perfect for the birthday card Shakespeare would appreciate most.
A “mammering, knotty-pated bed-presser” is a stammering, thick-headed lazy person.
A “fusty, puke-stocking mushrump” is a moldy, dark-colored leg-wear mushroom.
And a “gorbellied, motley-minded rampallian” is a big bellied, foolish ruffian.
Happy birthday again, Shakespeare! Thank you for widening our insult vocabulary, you beslubbering, tripe-visaged bugbear.
