So Says Hamlet

Ready for another Monday insult from Shakespeare? Ready or not, here it comes.

Today’s insult comes from Hamlet, as Prince Hamlet forces his uncle, Claudius, to drink the poisoned cup:

Thou incestuous, murd’rous, damned Dane (Hamlet, V.2.327).

Sometimes one insult is not enough. Or even three. Sometimes you have to add “Dane” to the mix.
