TT - And now for the B's

Since everyone enjoyed the A's so much last week, here are the B's - name-calling Shakespeare style (don't worry, I won't be going through the whole alphabet. I've got an idea for a book list next, I just haven't had a chance to put it together yet):
  1. Bacon-Fed Knaves (and bacon is a problem why?)

  2. Bag Of Flax (mine is a food additive, but I could try using it as an insult instead I suppose)

  3. Barren-Spirited Fellow

  4. Base And Humble Mind
  5. Base Ignoble Wretch
  6. Base Minnow Of Mirth
  7. Bawd Between Fold And Want (I don't even know what this one means)
  8. Beauty's Canker
  9. Bed-Swerver
  10. Blasting And Scandalous Breath
  11. Boil'd Brains (sounds appetizing)
  12. Bolting Hutch Of Beastliness
  13. Breeder Of Dire Events

I think I'll name 5 and 12 as my favorites this week. What are yours?




Don't forget to visit Thursday Thirteen to see what everyone else is talking about this week. Hey wait a minute - this week's TT isn't up yet. Nevermind, we'll just start without them.

Did you see your muse dancing on the eclipsed moon???

Robin said...

So THAT'S where she's been! We couldn't see the eclipse from here.

what an lists ;)

My T13 #1

Gattina said...

Sorry, but I don't really understand.

Robin said...

They're all insults that Shakespeare used in his plays Gattina. This week I chose 13 that started with B.

grace said...

I really thought you would go through Z. ;-)

I don't think I have a favorite, as I like these all but one thing for sure, I don't want to be #13!

Kelley said...

yes 12 is my fave. Gotta go yell at
Moo for not putting her dishes in the dishwasher.

Tossing up between Bolting Hutch of Beastliness and Beauty's Canker...

Milan - zzz said...

I like #5 but since I'm zzz that shouldn't be surprising :)
Cheers!

Hootin' Anni said...

I like to read Shakespeare....I love 'em all. But I guess if you want just one as a favorite it'd have to be #8.

Oh and the one "B" I first thought of was a quote from a movie "Open Range" with Kevin Costner...an insult ---

Bucket Mouth!!
I love that. Don't ask me why. ::giggles::

Pop Tart said...

#10 is hysterical!

Lilibeth said...

I like the base minnow of mirth. I should try these out on my students. There's one I have in mind for this one, actually. ha ha.

Lyrical Press, Inc. said...

Hey! Theer's nothing wrong with bacon. lol

Lori said...

Great list:) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Darla said...

Breeder of dire events. I love it!

Reiza said...

I'm a fan of the first one. :-) Although, I'm afraid it loses some of its potency with my non-Jewish friends. :-)

Mrs. W said...

8 and 13 are awesome! Beauty's Canker and Breeder of Dire Events... yikes!

So hilarious!

And since you are interested in creative insults, my family and I thought this was hilarious... enjoy!

Claudia said...

Breeder of Dire events?? What is that?? Yikes!

Happy TT!

julia said...

'Base Ignoble Wretch' & 'Breeder Of Dire Events' are definitely my faves. Can't wait for the first chance to use them on some poor unsuspecting fellow.

colleen said...

I wish we all really talked like that, made up new ways to say everyday things. I like Breeder of Dire Events.

Domestic Spaz said...

I love "Beauty's Canker"... perfect!

myrtle beached whale said...

You have been tagged for a MEME. I know you will do a great job. I love your writing.

jennifer in OR said...

Oh my, what a creative TT!! The Bolting Hutch of Beastliness - like the hutch where one stores the good china?!

~Virginia~ said...

Ooh! Breeder of Dire Events...how ghastly! :)

Janet said...

#1 is my favorite! Mmmmm...bacon!

L the D said...

Numbers eight and thirteen made me laugh out loud.

fullbodytransplant said...

Bloody Brilliant!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Uh-oh. None of those grabbed me the way they did last week. :(

Must be the mood I'm in, but I can't say what mood that is, other than Dreading Doing Dishes. Got an insult for that?

pussreboots said...

I heard #4 used recently. It was probably on House. Happy TT.

myrtle beached whale said...

I am new at the Thurday 13 and am obviously too stupid to make any sense out of the home page, so I will post here.

4 & 8 are my favs

cajunvegan said...

I am so using Base Ignoble Wretch at my earliest convenience.

Did you see I have a new domain?

Stop by and check out my stank TT too.

xakara said...

Bed-Swerver? Really? *nod* Okay.

Barren-Spirited Fellow and Breeder of Dire Events are my favorite. I'm still deciding on Bed-Swerver...

Thanks for coming by Robin :)
