I’ve always been a big proponent of making insults and insinuations that are both understandable, and bizarre. You don’t want to insult someone in a normal fashion with something old and boring. At the same time, if you have to explain to the person you insulted just what your insult meant, it takes the sting out of the barb.
A new book has turned up called the Shakespeare Insult Generator that lets you insult people using the words of Shakespearean literature. The downside to the book is that if you aren’t insulting an English Lit major, you will probably need to explain to them what the insult means.
The book has pages that are split into three cards. Each of the sections can be mixed and matched until you form the perfect insult. The back of the cards also tell you what the words mean. You can get the book now for $12.95(USD) on ThinkGeek, you pestiferous, hollow-eyed, malignancy.
