Thou wimpled motley-minded giglet!

No, don't take it personally. I've just discovered, via Purple Pen, the delightful Shakespeare Insulter.

In case you were wondering: Giglet (n.) A wanton; a lascivious or light, giddy girl. (From Brainy Dictionary, which looks rather useful.)

Try that, thou churlish hell-hated measle!

Or alternatively, the full text of the 1970's Dictionary of the History of Ideas. Very much of its time, but useful nonetheless.

You can create your own insults! Great fun.
