Brains and Elbows

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

thersites-and-ajax

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.
