Get yo' cuss on! - The Reprise

Given the warm response netted by my suggestion that we all get Elizabethan on the collective arses of the more irritating members of the Blogosphere; I thought, why stop there? If Modern English insults are entertaining, Middle English should be doubly so and why confine ourselves to English at all? Eh? How about this gem from Old High German/Latin:
"Vnde ars in tine naso (canis culum in tuo naso)!"
A dog's butt in your face!
-- from the earliest Berlitz translation guide written for a Frenchman travelling in Germany, 10th century
So it is with great pleasure that I present to you the University of Oregon's Medieval Insult Page. Have at it.
