Shakespearean Insult Kit

Thou vain sheep-biting malt-worm!
Thou spleeny hell-hated puttock!

Thou dissembling rump-fed jolt-head!

Thou saucy ill-nurtured bum-bailey!

GG's editor has found relief & amusement from tweeting Shakespearean phrases out into the ether. While they were rude & often filthy to Elizabethans, they are funny to modern ears. Sometimes, one really does want to let someone have it online; but GG Central finds the world harsh enough without adding to it with modern vulgarity. So let fly with the old vulgarity & consult the Shakespearean Insult Kit.

PS: Here is another Shakespeare Insult Generator!
