Salt-Butter What?

We here at The Bard and the Bible blog hope your Monday is going well. If not, we offer the following Shakespearean insult–the best kind, really–for your entertainment, enrichment, and possible (albeit judicious) use.


This week’s insult is from The Merry Wives of Windsor, spoken by Falstaff of Master Ford (whom he thinks he has not yet met):

Hang him, mechanical, salt-butter rogue (The Merry Wives of Windsor, II.2.267).

You’re welcome. You are now free to move about the rest of your Monday.
