Shakespeare Insult Generator (1/3)

These three mini-blogs will learn you how to create your own Shakespeare insult generator.

The first time I encountered a predecessor of the Shakespeare insult generator, was in 2001. At that time I was working as a developer at Navision NL. During one of the technical training session in Denmark, a technical fellow showed the reporting options in Axapta version 2.x. The data for the report was randomly retrieved from a fixed list of Shakespeare insults. Later I learned that the original list of Shakespeare insults actually was gathered by an anonymous teacher who was a huge fan of Shakespeare.

Three lists of words will be used as basis. The way in which an insult is composed is shown in the following image.


The next blog shows how to create a web service for the Shakespeare Insult generator.
