Brains and Elbows

It is Monday, which means it is time for another insult from Shakespeare.


Today’s insult comes from the 1609 play, Troilus and Cressida, and was spoken by Thersites to Ajax in Act Two of that play:

Thou hast no more brain than I have in mine elbows (Troilus and Cressida, II.1.41).

Try it out at the office today. Especially if you work in government.
