Shakespeare Insult Generator: Mix and Match More Than 150,000 Insults in the Bard's Own Wordsby Barry Kraft
Synopses & Reviews
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.
In the 1300s, Dante described only nine circles of hell in the underworld. Since then? No new updates. Thankfully,and#160;Go to Hellsand#160;picks up where Dante left off, providing readers with a much-needed expanded edition of the Inferno. Included in this volume-in-verse are helpful descriptions and illustrations of the contemporary hell circles that have cropped up since Danteand#39;s times. The guiding maxim of Go to Hells? We all know that the devil is in the details. So when you tell someone to go to hell, you should be as specific as possible. Covering everything from Movie Talkers and Loud Typers to Reply All-ers and those guilty of chronic PDA, Go to Hellsand#160;provides all the details the savvy crank needs to keep pace with the new and ever-more-irksome irritations of the modern world.

But Annie proves that the show must go on, even when the actors forget their lines...or fall flat on their backs!
