William Shakespeare is no ordinary writer and although he has died 400 years ago, he continues to inspire, influence, and entertain people with his insightful plays and sonnets.

Throughout his works, he coined and hurled insults, engaged in risqué humor, as well as made crude jokes that may not be readily discerned due to his words mastery.

Now here are 5 of the bard’s best zingers:

  1. Tempt not too much the hatred of my spirit; For I am sick when I do look on thee
  2. Who are you calling “beast,” midget? You’re no bigger than three inches!
  3. Thou art a boil, a plague sore
  4. Thou elvish-mark’d, abortive, rooting hog!
  5. Villain, I have done thy mother
