You Pribbling, Knotty-Pated Wagtail! (Can't You Feel the Love?)

Before I get to my super awesome post, I have a teeny announcement.

Ta dum:

I FINISHED MY WIP YESTERDAY!!!!! Hooray!! It does need some editing, of course, which my AWESOME CPs are helping me with. But it's just so refreshing to write the final sentence

And as part of my research for this project, I needed to find insults from the 1800's. And I came across http://www.workitla.com/2011/12/insults-from-1800s.html. Not that I'm huge into insulting people or anything (really, I'm not), but the combinations are insanely fun to say, so I thought I'd share. Why can't we be this creative anymore, lol? :-p (Thou beslubbering, beef-witted barnacle!)


So all you saucy, tickle-brained strumpets, what's your favorite combination? :D
