effing shakespeare
one of my 317 pet peeves is the modern dictionarification of reference material. don’t get me wrong, traditional dictionaries still put the lead in my 7.5 inch-long lead pencil, BUT if a dictionary doesn’t give definitions, it is not actually a dictionary—even if its contents are indexed alphabetically. the shakespeare insults dictionary is an example of this latter, looser type of dictionary. regardless, i made a pledge to you long ago to find interesting f-words from dictionaries and i intend on delivering EVEN if it goes against my irrational biases.
here are a few choice insults that begin with f collected from shakespeare’s oeuvre. you can use them on your enemies in real life OR, as shakespeare probably intended—in online flame wars:
false caterpillars
famished beggar
fancy-monger
fat and greasy citizen
fat chuff
fatal screech-owl
fat-kidneyed rascal
fell-lurking cur
filthy worsted-stocking knave
fishmonger
flax-wench
flinty tartar
foolish carrion
foul indigested lump
frantic fool
freckled whelp hag-born
frosty-spirited rogue
fustilarian
fusty plebeian
