[Thy] Tongue Outvenoms All the Worms of Nile*

Shakespeare’s works contain references to adultery, incest, and premarital sex, and is replete with bawdy humor and double entendres. And don’t forget the violence. Don’t even get me started on the violence. Quick — name a Shakespearean tragedy where the title characters live through the fifth act. Couldn’t do it, could you? Bodies pile up faster in Shakespeare’s plays than they do in the Baltimore morgue.**

  1. Susanna says:

    Thou puking lily-livered harpy!

  2. Susanna says:

    (that was the first one that came up on the insult-o-meter… I swear!)

  3. Oh YEAH, baby! It’s me.

    “Thou saucy doghearted flax-wench!”

    I’m usually sauced, I ::heart:: dogs, ‘Flax’ as in the color of my hair (NOT the dinner by product, Bingley you foul minded pigdog.) and I ascribe to wenchdom when it suits me.

  4. Mr. Bingley says:

    “Flatuwench” fits better, though.

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    “Thou craven fool-born codpiece! ”

  6. Susanna says:

    “Methink’st thou art a general offence and every man should beat thee.”
    A classic if there ever was one.

  7. Dave J says:

    Such inordinate and low desires,
    Such poor, such bare, such lewd, such mean attempts,
    Such barren pleasures, rude society,
    As thou art match’d withal, and grafted to!

    –Henry IV, Part I

  8. “Hast thou never an eye in thy head?” Taken from Henry IV
    “I find the ass in compound with the major part of your syllables.”
    Taken from: Coriolanus

    What a riot! I just had to keep clicking and being insulted. This is a great find, THS.

  9. Nightfly says:

    Thou whoreson cur! O monstrous misborn fool
    To bandy feeble jibes of feeble wit
    Amongst thy betters! Go to, jackanapes.

    Prospero gets in some great volleys on Caliban, too.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    Your bedded hair, like life in excrements, start up and stand on end.
    Hehehe, go Hamlet
