HILARIOUS BOOK! WOW YOUR FRIENDS!

This book collects the smartest stings ever to snap from the tip of an English-speaking tongue. You can use this book in a hundred ways. Keep it near at hand. Be ready when the need arises. Shakespeare can lend you the fulsome, dripping line you need.
Includes hundreds of great insults, like:
"I never see thy face but I think upon hell-fire!"
"You crusty botch of nature!"
"You do me most insupportable vexation"
"If I were but two hours younger, I'd beat thee."
"More of your conversation would infect my brain"
"Your face is not worth sunburning!"
"Some strange commotion is in your brain."
"Your horrid image doth unfix my hair!"
And many many more!

If you've ever longed for that perfect insult, but just couldn't think of the right words, The Bard is there for you. Organized by category. Very canonical.

The art of the insult has long been lost, degraded to mere offensiveness and crudity. Now you can improve your insultive abilities with lessons from the Master. Contains "How To Handle This Book"; "Name-Calling: General Abuse, Knavery and Villainy, and Expletives"; "(A Compendium of Examples from Each of) The Plays"; and "Ready Insults for Particular Occasions". 308 pp. Size about 8" by 5" by 1/2".
