“You’re a rattlecap, cow-handed fopdoodle!”
If you have no idea what that means, you’ll want to stick around for these 21 weird vintage insults. They come from the 19th century, a time when many people made an effort to sound as eloquent as possible while still making those around them feel like walking trash.

1. Fopdoodle: A person who is ostentatious, showy, and a little ridiculous.
2. Mulligrubs: A sulky, grumbling grump.
