Hey nonny nonny, today is
#ShakespearesBirthday and #TalkLikeShakespeareDay. William was a master of stinging insults and comical comebacks, so I’m sharing a video of my nonsense poem full of Shakespeareanesque insults.

Text version of the poem
How to Insult With Shakespearean Style
by Suzanne Olivante (written in 2015 and the winning entry for the Tweetspeak GIF competition).
YOU clatter-brained bumble-spike,
YOU rotten-smackled slime-bin,
YOU slop-bucket noodle-flick
and belly-flopping custard-skin.
YOU pond-bottomed waffle-spoon,
YOU lump-faced dangle-wart,
YOU flea-bitten doodle-wipe
and mirror-howling waddle-snort.
YOU shriek-humped bitter-twist,
YOU plum-fangled piddle-dot,
YOU stink-walloped sausage-bag
and maggot-friendly squeezy-spot.
