Friday fun: Lob a Shakespearean putdown

NCPA April 22, 2021

Today is the 457th birthday of everyone’s favorite Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare. In honor of this august day, we offer a few of Shakespeare’s best insults so you can literately disparage your friends and neighbors. Forthwith:

  • I am sick when I do look on thee.” – “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

  • I must tell you, friendly in your ear, sell when you can, you are not for all markets.” – “As You Like It”

  • I scorn you, scurvy companion.” – “Henry IV, Part II”

  • More of your conversation would infect my brain.” – “Coriolanus”

  • “There’s no more faith in thee than a stewed prune.” – “Henry IV, Part I”
