Shakespeare Knows How to Insult Someone

Election Day is almost here! I'm laughing. I'm crying. I'm developing a nervous eye tick. This will be a year for the record books, hopefully for good reason.

Some of my friends have spent countless hours insulting certain political candidates. So much so that they seem to have run out of insults and have decided to just stay off social media until after the results are announced. Honestly, if that's your approach, I'd give it a good week after the election before venturing onto social media again.

But if you'd like to stay in the fray, and want to keep lobbing insults at a candidate, Shakespeare is to the rescue. This site will generate a Shakespearean insult for you. Here's a taste of the insults I received:

Thou spongy plume-plucked boar-pig!

Thou cockered beef-witted dewberry!

[Thine] face is not worth sunburning.

I scorn you, scurvy companion. What, you poor, base, rascally, cheating, lack-linen mate! Away, you moldy rogue, away!
