    DescriptionSome occasions call for a tart-tongued insult, but why resort to commonplace modern-day words? If you must be offensive, hearken back to the Elizabethan days for more salacious and outrageous word choices. Impress your friends with your mastery of lewd iambic pentameter, and vanquish your enemies with the power of the bard. After all, a toadspotted maggot by any other name would be as pestilent...You can mix and match to come up with your own raucous rebuffs, including: 'Thou Foul-Reeking Lily-Livered Codpiece!'; 'Thou Ruttish Rump-Fed Pignut!'; 'Thou Beslubbering Cockeyed Canker-blossom!'; and a multitude of other bawdy combinations.

    Author Information
    Sarah Royal has spent the past few years in New Jersey, New York City, and Chicago, and has absorbed a great deal of creative profanity from all three filthy environments. She's a writer who has published articles, stories, essays, and zines. She lives in Portland, Oregon. Jillian Hofer has worked behind the scenes in enough restaurants to have heard a smorgasbord of indignities guaranteed to keep her talking like a sailor for a lifetime. She lives with her husband and son in Rye Brook, New York.
