The Best Literary Insults (PHOTOS)

Earlier this week, we featured a series of zings courtesy of the master of insults, William Shakespeare. Feeling inspired by Shakey, we asked you, dear readers, to do the unthinkable -- leave insults in the comments section. You rose to the challenge with some of the cleverest put-downs in history. We've compiled the best and present them to you here in Someecard form (classy, we know). Let us know your favorites, and please, keep the insults coming in the comments -- we'll keep adding the wittiest disses to this series.

Read on, you fishmongerers!
