How to insult someone like Shakespeare.

Heh. Pushing “Insult me again” can get rather addicting. We have a set of word magnets for constructing do-it-yourself Shakespearean insults, but we’ve never come up with any as biting as these from Will himself:

"Thou craven full-gorged baggage!" (what a creative way to call someone a fat coward)
"Thou mammering knotty-pated bladder!" (pretty much covers all the angles, doesn’t it?)
"Thou droning pox-marked canker-blossom!" (particularly cutting for high school science geeks with acne)
"Confusion now hath made his masterpiece!" (could an insult sound more refined that that?)

I think this is the winner, though, for sheer punch:
"Thou puking fat-kidneyed death-token!" How could any sensitive soul recover from that one?
