Accoutrements Shakespearean Insult Bandages

Every home should have a pack of adhesive bandages (if you live in the UK, this is the same thing as sticking plasters) to help stop the bleeding, and to help protect a small wound from becoming dirty and infected. Obviously if the wound is bigger than one of these bandages can cope with, the patient should always seek medical advice but this pack contains self-adhesive bandages that are perfect for the normal cuts and scrapes that everyone gets around the home.

Detailed information about Accoutrements Shakespearean Insult Bandages

Shakespearean Insult Bandages! What more could anyone ask, especially if the person you are buying for is especially well-read and prefers to throw insults that nobody else will understand.

Each resealable tin is colourfully decorated with an artist’s impression of The Bard himself to remind the owner who they have to thank for the sharp and scathing witticisms printed on each of the fifteen bandages inside.

They weren’t all gloomy and boring, William Shakespeare had to entertain the people of 16th Century London and they came from all types of backgrounds, including royalty, noblemen and the ordinary folk. If his words did not entertain then he was out of a job. Let us hope they entertain you and the person who is wearing one of these fantastic bandages.
