Siobhan Thompson Uses Shakespearean Insults on Modern Coworkers in Her Web Series ‘Anglophenia’

Siobhan Thompson of the web series Anglophenia recently demonstrated what it would be like to use Shakespearean insults on coworkers in a modern office setting. How would modern people react to having a thumb bit at them or being called a “bolting-hutch of beastliness,” a “swaggering rascal,” or “rampallion”?

A blog post on BBC America provides the sources for all the insults used in the video.
