Another Monday, another insult. At least here at The Bard and the Bible that is the case.
Today’s insult comes from Love’s Labour’s Lost, where Berowne insults Costard:
Ah, you whoreson loggerhead! (Love’s Labour’s Lost, IV, 3, 199).
As it happens, “whoreson” was a common insult of the day and one of Shakespeare’s favorites, as he uses it thirty-nine times in fourteen of his plays. However, our suggestion here at The Bard and the Bible is that you should probably be more free in your use of “loggerhead” than “whoreson.” Just a suggestion.
