It is Monday, and thus a fine day for another insult from a master of the art, William Shakespeare.

Today’s insult is from Act 4, Scene 6, of Shakespeare’s Pericles, in which the virtuous Marina (that’s her, above) tells Boult, who is marching her off to a brothel:

Thy food is such
As hath been belch’d on by infected lungs (Pericles 4.6.156).

So much better than calling him a dirty old man, don’t you think?
