Website of the Week - Shakespearean Insulter

“To be or not to be” is normally what people quote from Shakespeare, but it's time to take it up a notch. Thanks to the Shakespearean Insulter, you can offend your friends the old school way. Imagine! Insulting people without their even knowing what you're talking about. It's a powerful feeling. If you're not into power - but are up for a good laugh - just take a look at some of these doozies: “You shall stifle in your own report, and smell of calumny”(From Measure for Measure). I have no clear idea what that means but there is lots more where that came from. This one goes out to someone special (you know who you are): “Thou weedy crook-pated canker-blossom!"
Chris Seidel came up with this gem of a website. He's a scientist and a literary scholar. It makes me say to myself, "Canst thou believe thy living is a life, so stinkingly depending? Go mend, go mend." Or something.
