Shakespearean Insult Shot Glasses

I really only wish there were more than six, or different packs of insults because Shakespeare truly had quite the vocabulary when angered. At least, his characters did.

Here are some of my favorites which would be great on a glass (selecting smaller insults that could fit on a shot glass, of course):

  • Go, prick thy face, and over-red thy fear, Thou lily-liver’d boy.
  • His wit’s as thick as a Tewkesbury mustard.
  • Methink’st thou art a general offence and every man should beat thee.
  • Your brain is as dry as the remainder biscuit after voyage.

How can you not love his words? 

This would make a great gag gift for any friend or family member who is a literary buff. Better yet, you could always slip a box to your English Professor. S/he might be charmed – or not. Never can tell until your midterms.

Why we love it

Shakespeare had the best insults and the longest. There are books and calendars dedicated to his insults. I love that a chosen few are printed onto shot glasses. It seems like the perfect combination. Amiright?

Where we found it

I discovered a different set of shot glasses from the same company on drinking with the great alcoholic authors (linked below). I loved both but when I saw the insults box, I was sold.
