A Pox on Ye, Blockish Grutnols!

They Don't Make Invective Like They Used'ter. Take your choice: next time your significant other leaves the toilet seat up (or down, depending on the laws in your house)... launch forth with one or preferrably a half-dozen of these utterly damning (if unintelligible) epithets in rapid succession. After all, when's the last time you enjoyed a really invigorating, vitriolic diatribe. Hmmmm? In 1653, buddies, you could let fly the vituperation with reckless abandon.
