Thou art a boil, a plague sore!

Here are some of my favorite Shakespearean insults, which can be found on the mug on my desk in the office, and make me happy:

Mountain of mad flesh

Light of brain

Bolting-hutch of beastliness

Not so much brain as ear wax

Long-tongu’d babbling gossip

I do desire we may be better strangers

Lump of foul deformity

Elvish-mark’d abortive, rooting hog

As ignorant as dirt

False of heart, light of ear, bloody of hand

Roast-meat for worms

Infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise-breaker

Quintessence of dust

A fusty nut with no kernel

The soul of this man is his clothes

Beetle-headed, flap-ear’d knave

You should use those in the office.

"Riley, you are a lump of foul deformity. Quit talking to me."
