While browsing the internet I ran into an awesome list of wonderful insults that people used in the past. I have to admit that I really like them.
And I am serious when I say that I am planning to memorize them and use them whenever the situation is right for it.
Gobermouch: This is an old Irish term for someone who likes to meddle in other people’s business.
Gnashnab: An 18th century northern English word, meaning someone who just complains all the time. Contemporary synonyms include nitpicker, moaner and grumbler.
Snoutband: Someone who always interrupts a conversation to correct or contradict the person speaking. Every social group has a snoutband, who thinks they know everything.
Stampcrab: Someone that’s clumsy and heavy of foot would be considered a stampcrab.
Scobblelotcher: Mental Floss notes this word is “probably derived from ‘scopperloit,’ an old English dialect word for a vacation or a break from work.” A scobberlotcher is someone who avoids hard work like it’s their job.
Whiffle-Whaffle: This is someone who wastes a lot of time.
Zooterkins: A 17th century variant of ‘zounds’ which was an expression of surprise or indignation.” It’s less of an insult and more of something to yell after someone has insulted you..
Zounderkite: This is a Victorian word meaning idiot.
Bedswerver: Shakespeare coined this one to describe an adulterer.
Fopdoodle: A fopdoodle is someone of little significance.
Klazomaniac: This would be a person WHO CAN ONLY SPEAK BY SHOUTING.
