Shakespearean Insult Gum

Ever had the urge to throw an insult or ridicule somebody while you’re chewing gum? Do you like Shakespeare and have a passion to quote him, especially in times of boredom? Then what you need in your pocket is the Shakespearean Insult Gum.

The packaging is also something to look at. Two pieces of gum are packed into small boxes labeled with some of Shakespeare’s most well-known and famous work: King Lear, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, and of course, Romeo and Juliet.


  • Each set includes seven 1″ (2.5 cm) tall boxes that look like miniature Shakespeare volumes.
  • Inside each box you’ll find two fruit flavored gum balls and an eloquent Shakespearean insult printed on the inside.
  • Sure to offend the intellectuals and confuse the dimwitted!
  • Refresh your breath with style.
  • A fantastic conversation starter.

Available from Amazon, but hurry, they move fast!

Think Geek also has a brand new flavor of lip balm!!

So many fall treats to choose from. This year I’ll be making these gruesome sweets,  undead cupcakes.  Devil’s food cake (I couldn’t resist the joke), with a simple cream cheese cream filling, topped with green frosting & dirt, with a zombie hand bursting through the surface.

I’ll be playing with the recipe a bit, of course.  To make a delicious cream cheese filling just combine a brick of cream cheese with a small tub of cool whip (or other tub based whipped topping), add sugar & vanilla to taste.  For added effect I’ll be dying mine blood-red, green, or ‘pus’ colored.

Also on my treat list are Oreo Truffles. They would be perfect about eyeball sized, and dipped in white chocolate.  Michael’s sells various shades of dipping chocolate for a talented and steady hand to add detail.  I’ve already planned for tiny pumpkin shaped Oreo truffles (dipped in orange colored white chocolate).  If I was more talented, I’d draw tiny jack-o-lantern faces on them all.

I may or may not be excited for Halloween.
