Shakespearean Insults!!

We got to insult each other in Brit Lit today!!

I probably shouldn’t be so excited about that (lol)


So for class we had to take a word from three columns on a paper we got with different Shakespearean insults. You had to start each sentence with Thou art….

Example: “Thou art a boil, a plague sore, an embossed carbuncle in my corrupted blood.” 

( I don’t now the translation for this one but it sounded so mean :-p. This isn’t one we used but you get the idea.)


I think this was one of the funniest projects I’ve done in my 4 years of high school (only a few weeks left).

We had to make 15 or more sentences. The last column was basically a bunch of different ways to call someone (typically a women) an escort (I’m being polite by the way, real words are worse).

We were on teams, Caliban and Prospero (from The Tempest).

I was on team Prospero, we won the battle. I got us two points, yay!

If I get my paper back tomorrow I’ll post the two insults I made and you guys can look them up. It was hilarious, especially when people brushed off their British accents and really got into it. I can’t fake a British accent to save my life (well except for a few phrases).

Anyway this was my high school fun tidbit for the week. Tomorrows Friday!

Senior photos and work on Saturday.

Hope everyone is doing okay and having a great week.

Stay safe out there!
