Shakespeare’s Quips, Cusses & Curses Quiz Deck

With 48 fact-filled cards per package, Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information—all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards.

Who can deny the satisfaction in coming up with the right words at the right time to put a rude, insulting or otherwise unpleasant person in his or her place?

For hilarious lessons in the fine art of rapier-sharp retorts,
punishing put-downs and ego-crushing expletives, we can turn to the master, William Shakespeare.

Though more famous for romantic sonnets, Shakespeare also penned some of the most memorably vile personal appraisals, brutal jokes and lewd, scurrilous insinuations ever to grace the English language.

This deck of 48 cards features fill-in-the-blank bawdiness on each front, where the sources are also cited. The completed quip, cuss or curse is presented on the backside. Contextual notes—i.e., who is abusing whom, why, and in what play—support each quotation.

Clever and fun this is a novel gift for all aspiring writers and anglophiles.
