Brilliant! These were my faves:

Your face is as a book, where men may read strange matters.
Thou roguish earth-vexing bum-bailey!
You yourself, sir, shall grow old as I am if like a crab you could go backward.
Idol of idiot-worshipers!
Were I like thee I'd throw away myself.
[Thou] sanguine coward, [thou] bed-presser, [thou] horseback-breaker, [thou] huge hill of flesh!
[Thou] shall stand in fire up to the navel and in ice up to th'heart, and there th'offending part burns and the deceiving part freezes.
I find the ass in compound with the major part of your syllables.

haha- ive always loved
"Do you set down your name in the scroll of youth, that are written down old with all the characters of age? Have you not a moist eye, a dry hand, a yellow cheek, a white beard, a decreasing leg, an increasing belly? Is not your voice broken, your wind short, your chin double, your wit single, and every part about you blasted with antiquity? And will you yet call yourself young? " (Henry IV, part 2)

Did you know theres a 1 act play composed of all Shakespeare insults? its an amazing bit of literature.
It isn't an insult, but the best word i have ever come from shakespear is "Honorificabilitudinitatibus". It is mentioned by the character Costard in Act V, Scene I of William Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost. I try to use it at least once a day.
whenever im made at anyone i physically bite my thumb at them!
One of the most electric moments of Macbeth is when Lady M asks M, "Are you a man?" While not one of the quotable insults of the other plays, it's just so powerfully delivered and important to their relationship.
