Shakespearean Insult Contest!

What is the best Shakespearean insult you can come up with?

We are running a contest this week and giving people a chance to win autographed copies of Kill Shakespeare #1 and #2.  Send us (via email, facebook, twitter, or leaving a comment below) your absolute best (or worst) insult and we’ll give copies to the best three entrants.

Some of Shakey’s best:

(Your) brain is as dry as the remainder biscuit after a voyage.” – As You Like It

Come, you are a tedious fool. To the purpose.” – Measure for Measure

Were I like thee I’d throw away myself.” – Timon of Athens

    Thou art a dog that would do better to bite its own tongue than others.

    ” ‘Nay then [...] you will fall again Into your idle over-handled theme: The kiss I gave you is bestow’d in vain, And all in vain you strive against the stream; For, by this black-faced night, desire’s foul nurse, Your treatise makes me like you worse and worse. If love have lent you twenty thousand tongues And every tongue more moving that your own, Bewitching like the wanton mermaid’s songs, Yet from mine ear the tempting tune is blown; For know, my heart stands armed in mine ear, And will not let a false sound enter there.” -Venus and Adonis
