If you are one of those people who has trouble launching a good insult, we are here to serve. All you have to do is subscribe to this website and every Monday you will get a handy insult from Shakespeare.
This week’s insult is spoken by Petruchio to several others about Katherina, the “shrew” of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew:
She is an irksome brawling scold (The Taming of the Shrew, I.2.185).
You may wish to keep in mind that an irksome brawling scold will be irked and inclined to brawl if you call her (or him, for that matter) an irksome brawling scold. So use it wisely.
