I have started reading Nice ways to say bad things in English and it is a fountain of potential insults, some only English majors will comprehend. For example, an excerpt: "You clod of puke-stoking roastmeat for worms!" Will Shakespeare "You show yourself highly fed and lowly taught." Will Shakespeare "She was a woman of mean understanding, little information and uncertain temper" Jane Austen Also, I have had a lot of fun with the Shakespeare Insult Generator: <a class="postlink" href="http://www.pangloss.com/seidel/Shaker/index.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.pangloss.com/seidel/Shaker/index.html</a> But, we can do better. Focus: Insults. Let's have some of the good ones.
