Shakespeare Insult Generator: Mix and Match More Than 150,000 Insults in the Bard's Own Words Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Put dullards and miscreants in their place with more than 150,000 handy mix-and-match insults in the bard's own words. This entertaining insult generator and flip book collects hundreds of words from Shakespeare's most pointed barbs and allows readers to combine them in creative and hilariously stinging ways. From "apish bald-pated abomination" to "cuckoldly dull-brained blockhead" to "obscene rump-fed hornbeast," each insult can be chosen at random or customized to fit any situation that calls for a literary smackdown. Featuring an informative introduction on Shakespearean wit, and notes on which terms were coined or only used once by the author in his work, this delightful book will sharpen the tongue of Shakespeare fans and insult aficionados without much further ado.

Synopsis:

During a class trip to the supermarket, Annie Pitts almost puts an end to her acting career before it even gets off the ground when she throws a dead fish at her enemy Matthew. As punishment, she's served up the least appetizing part in the school play on nutrition: the artichoke. But Annie proves that the show must go on, even when the actors forget their lines...or fall flat on their backs!
