In our penultimate session working on the Tudor Tours scripts, the Young Writers finalised their character choices, found out some more about Tudor House from a former employee, and started typing up their final scripts. We also found some fun Tudor insults, including:
Cumberworld - someone who is so useless, they just serve to take up space
Dalcop - cop is an old word for the head, making a dalcop (literally a dullhead) a particularly stupid person. You could also be a harecop, or a hare-brained person.
Dorbel - as well as being another name for a nincompoop, a dorbel is a petty, nit-picking teacher.
Driggle-draggle - an untidy woman
Fopdoodle - an insignificant or foolish man
Gnashgab - someone who only ever seems to complain.
Loitersack - an idling lazy good-for-nothing.
Lubberwort - a lethargic, fuzzy-minded person.
Scobberblother - someone who never works hard.
Skelpie-limmer - a badly behaved child.
Snoutband - someone who constanty interrupts a conversation, typically only to contradict or correct someone else.
Stampcrab - a heavy-footed clumsy person.
Whiffle-whaffle - an indecisive, time-wasting ditherer.
Look out for these insults, which sound like they come straight from the mouth of the BFG, in the Terrific Tudor Tours at Tudor House on 6th April!
