Top 10 Shakespearean Insults

In no particular order:


1- Your face is as a book, where men may read strange matters. – Macbeth

2- [Thou hath] not so much brain as ear wax. – Troilus and Cressida

3- Sell your face for five pence and ’tis dear. – King John

4- [Thou art] a most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality. – All’s Well That Ends Well

5- Idol of idiot-worshippers! – Troilus and Cressida

6- [Your] brain is as dry as the remainder biscuit after a voyage. – As You Like It

7- God hath given you one face and you make yourselves another. – Hamlet

8- Methink’st thou art a general offence and every man should beat thee. – All’s Well That Ends Well

9- You are as a candle, the better burnt out. – Henry IV, part 2

10- I find the ass in compound with the major part of your syllables. – Coriolanus

And those are some of what I would like to say to certain people sometimes, but I opted for the passive aggressive outlet.
