shakespeare

‘Avaunt, you cullions!’  Henry V.  The definition of avaunt is ‘go away’.  Cullion is defined as ‘testicle; a vile person’.  Together, ‘Be gone, you vile testicle-like person!’  Keeping a few Shakespearian insults in your vernacular-arsenal will not only [most likely] dupe the recipient of your verbal abuse, but also charm him with your poetic eloquence.
