A Fusty Nut

It is Monday. Again. That means it is time for another insult from Shakespeare.

Today’s insult comes from Troilus and Cressida, as the bombastic Thersites calls the warrior Achilles:

A fusty nut with no kernel (Troilus and Cressida II.1.99).

Wow. How does one recover from that? I don’t know. Try it out on someone today and see how it works.
