Shakespeare is best known for his literary works and great plays and sonnets but little do you know he also contributed some of the best insults known to English Literature. Here, are some of the best:
Though art a boil, a plague sore, an embossed carbuncle in my corrupted blood.
The rankest compound of villainous smell that ever offended nostril.
Away, you three-inch fool!
I scorn you, scurvy companion.
I’d beat thee, but I should infect my hands.
Methink’st thou art a general offence and every man should beat thee.
Tempt not too much the hatred of my spirit, for I am sick when I do look on thee.
Where wilt thou find a cavern dark enough to mask thy monstrous visage?
What a disgrace it is to me to remember thy name.
Lump of foul deformity.
Out of my sight! Though dost infect my eyes.
Though art the son and heir of a mongrel bitch.
