Have you ever wanted to berate someone without them knowing it? Ninny-hammer dunderheads won't know what happened to them when you give them the business. Now you will never not know when to call someone a goon and not a frigbeard. Perhaps you're a pimp who would like to maximize his perspicacity, your hose queens will know shit just got real when you bust out with them having to do a double-bagger.

Of the 7,000 insults, 6,000 of them are for the 13th-18th century. They are so uselessly out of date, that if you called any random person a scadger, or a trake, or a shed, or a doos, no one would know what the hell you were talking about! They'll think either your freakin' nuts, or you're some kind of moron!
I found this book to be not in the least helpful.
