Always fun, always absurd

It's not new, it's not even topical, it's just something everyone needs to have around, on your shelf, or in your bookmarks: The Shakespeare Insult Kit.

Here's a sample...and if you've forgotten how to do it, start with "Thou..." and add one word from each column.

 Column 1            Column 2            Column 3 

artless base-court apple-john
bawdy bat-fowling baggage
beslubbering beef-witted barnacle
bootless beetle-headed bladder
churlish boil-brained boar-pig
cockered clapper-clawed bugbear

Insult your literate friend today.
