Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Let's face it. If you spend enough time on the Internet, someone's going to purposely insult you, probably in boring old four-letter fashion. If you're a big enough person, you can close the browser, chat, or email window and turn the other cheek. Or you can break out the spiral bound Shakespeare Insult Generator and mix and match the bard's words to your nefarious purposes. Each page is broken into three flippable cards for over 150,000 combinations of high-brow contempt. On the back of each card is a translation, so you can know exactly what taunt you've tossed. What are you waiting for, you beslubbering, leptus-leering costermonger? "
- Geek Dad

"America, it's time to take our unfriendly discourse to the next level. No more cliché F-bombs or redundant reality-show retorts...The 162 vocabulary flashcards featured in the spiral-bound Shakespeare Insult Generator by Barry Kraft will help you create more than 150,000 staggeringly specific insults. Tell those sneaping rug-headed pig-nuts exactly what you think of them, especially when they act like pestiferous mushrumps. They'll be so confused or amused that your conflict will disappear. Peace through literature, you white-livered scuts!"
- Sacramento News & Review
