Z is for...

It's our last day people! I hope you've had fun and that you've enjoyed these insults and compliments.

Welcome to my 7th Challenge. Thank you Arlee Bird!  I know a certain Brit with a certain dog, who's a modest internet star, who thinks we are all crazy for doing this. So I'm doing something off the wall and a bit different just to put a smile on his face (and yours too I hope) and her muzzle if they so happen to stop by.

It's all about the A to Z of:

Shakespearean Insults
First Folio

Today's insult: Thou art a ZEALOUS ZERO, a swollen ZED.


Surrealist Compliments!

Today's compliment: No ZESTFUL ZOROASTRIAN can equal the disturbance of your calico eyes which bring the treble clef into discordant harmony. 

May they cause you to smile.
May they lighten your day and help you take things less seriously.
Pass them on if you would like.
Make up your own and share in the comments.
Or visit the Shakespearean Insult Generators HERE and

  9. I feel like a swollen zed at the moment! But we made it across the finish line and we're still standing. Loved your theme this years. The compliments and the insults kept me in stitches!

  10. How can you be a zealous zero? Work hard at being nobody I guess. :-) Thanks for continued visits and comments to my blog. I will miss them and you. Wasn't this fun?

  11. Shakespearean insults are the best! Congratulations on reaching the end! ~Liz

  12. So many z's in the insult! I'm not even going to try to understand the compliment...
    Congrats on finishing the challenge!

  13. Well the insult is harsh, and expected, and the compliment yea. Congrats on completing the challenge Yay!

  14. Zed. I like that. I wonder what it means . . . Congrats on putting together a unique A to Z collection.

  15. OK, not being an English native I had to look up ZOROASTRIAN - but hey, whatever works to get the letter Z done, right ;-)
    Congratulations on completing A-Z! Happy Sunday!

  16. It's a wrap!
    Congrats on reaching the finishing line, Bish!
    I had a good laugh.
    See you again next year - same time, same place!

  20. Quite the stinging insult. ;)
    Congrats on making it to the end of the challenge. I'll have to go back and look at past insults.

  21. Okay, Bish,

    One quick backtrack to your Zed, or heaven forbid, your "Zee" posting. Well done and I note that the the lovable, somewhat weird, Arlee Bird has been floating around.

    The modest internet SUPERSTAR and her Canadian, British, alleged human, on an almost serious note, congratulate you for completing the darned thing!

    As you were....

    Gary :)
