An Underrated Skill in Life

Life demands we learn vital skills. Perhaps one of the more underrated talents, is the art of the insult. No, seriously. Think about it. Sure we’re taught the importance of being polite and considerate, but some people have it coming. If you’re going to be Karma’s delivery boy, you might as well do it right.

With that in mind, remember that some insults truly are timeless, which is why you can’t go wrong by studying how William Shakespeare not only buried the knife but added the delightful twist that says, “You’ve been served.”

Here’s a fun article that shows off five of the “Bard Dude’s” best zingers:

“William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday: The five best insults ever dished out by the Bard”

Personally, I think the insults from The Comedy of Errors and Titus are my favorites out of the five listed.
