The Fine Art of Insulting

Laura at The Thinking Housewife takes exception to the crude insult uttered by a police commissioner in public.  I agree.  We must raise the level of our insults.  Base profanity is so common it hardly registers.   It is time to stand out above the crowd!

So, as a public service, I present to all of us the following alternatives:

 “A most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality.”   All’s Well That Ends Well

 “Thy tongue outvenoms all the worms of Nile.”   Cymbeline

 “Thou clay-brained guts, thou knotty-pated fool, thou whoreson obscene greasy tallow-catch!”   Henry IV Part 1
