Old English/Shakespearean Insults
An insult, according to Wikipedia is "an expression, statement (or sometimes behavior)which is considered degrading, offensive, or impolite".
I'm sure we all know what an insult is. At one time or another we've all been the victim of an insult. And, for course, I'm sure we've all delivered one. Looking around the internet Icame across many different types of insults. Some of them were funny, some of them were down right mean.
After perusing the internet I've come to the conclusion that nobody knows how to throw out insults like the Old English, Renaissance, Shakespearean man. They are truly creative and when you've heard an insult from this era you definately know you've been insulted.
Colorful examples of Insults
Mewling, Notty-pated hedgepig
Currish, doghearted maggot-pie
Thou weedy doghearted moldwarp
Thou art an artless, crook-pated, fawning, mewling, elf-skinned puttock
Thou art a churlish, dismal-dreaming fustilarian
thou babbling, guts-griping fat-belly
In sooth, thy dank cavernous tooth-hole consumes all truth and reason
Thou burly-boned malmsey-nosed lout
untaught, sour-natured idiot-worshipper
venomous, muddy-mottled cloakbag of guts
meddling, stretch-mouthed pigeon-egg
gleeking flap-mouthed canker-blossom
Thou churlish pottle-deep haggard
Odiferous octupus ooze
By my trowth, thou dost make the millstone seem as a feather what widst thy lard-bloated footfall
Pompous proliferator of putrid puns
currish fat-kidneyed boar-pig
Thou errant spur-galled gudgeon
Thy vile canker-blossom'd countenance curdles milk and sours beer
Thou bootless reeling-ripe skainsmate
