What would Shakespeare have called a television news anchor? I’m guessing something like a “pribbling motley-minded mumble-news.” Dick Cheney? Perhaps a “surly fen-sucked malt-worm.” George II? A “qualling idle-headed flap-dragon.” Check out the Shakesperean Insult Generator (via wordful). Almost as much fun as the PoMo English Paper Title Generator, but not quite.
