History lessons have never been so hilarious thanks to this collection of insults through the ages the targets of your barrage of vintage invective won't know what's hit them. Ever wanted to "air the lungs" (swear) like a cowboy or dreamed of channeling the wit of Shakespeare to deliver that killer putdown to an Elizabethan fustilarian (scoundrel)? Are you too much of a Medieval scobberlotcher (lazy person) to realise this ambition? Well, you're in luck because The History of Insults has some of the finest putdowns of all time starting with the Ancient Romans and Greeks and working through the centuries to the Jazz Age. This means you can dish out the best burns to baconfed bell swaggers (fat, loudmouth bullies) to your heart's content. As they used to say in 19thcentury London, "It's more than enough to make a stuffed bird laugh!"
