Truly thou art damned, like an ill-roasted egg, all on one side

Ye Olde Shakespearean Insultes

Don’t forget to check out ye olde insulte kit, and the bad poetry generator. (The latter is even better at being worse than me at poetry.)

LMAO!!
Here are a few “generations”:
“Rhizopods!”
“Carpet-sellers!”
“Olympic Athlete!”
“Interplanetary goat!”
“Fancy-dress fascist!”
“Misguided missile!”
“Toffee-noses!”

(Okay, I realize you might not find it as funny as I currently find it. But oh well, it is HILARIOUS!)

@Espera: “Interplanetary goat!” LMAO. Oh, you like Tintin too? 😀 I just loved those comics when I was a kid (and Asterix too, but Tintin was better). I think I still have a few, uh, somewhere in my room. I’ll need to take the whole place apart though to find them. Haddock’s expressions in the comics are oh-so-priceless! My second fave character(s) in Tintin would be Thompson and Thomson.

@ Ankur – Yes I agree…Thundering Typhoons!…Tintin and Asterix are evergeen and classics in their own right. I even watched the whole Tintin Series on Cartoon Network – Pity they dont show it now…I also preferred Tintin to Asterix.
A full list of Captain Haddock’s curses and exclamations here: Its a good read.

Thundering typhoons! Blistering blasphemous blue barnacles! How can anybody not like Tintin?? C’mON!
I stayed off Asterix resolutely when I was younger, pledging loyalty towards Tintin. Now that I have read a few of Asterixes, they aren’t too bad either.

Prateek: I used to watch the Tintin series on CN too. But I didn’t quite like them as much because they were in HINDI. What they don’t do to spoil all the fun =(

@Prateek and Espera: The Tintin cartoon series was good, but it strayed from the actual story in many cases. They just didn’t capture the essence of Tintin comics. I hope the one Steven Spielberg is making right now turns out to be better.

@ Ankur – Yes ofcourse the one Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are working on would definitely be great….After all they are the masters…
@ Espera – Yes they were in Hindi sadly and sometimes the essence was lost..
