Random Sequence: scroyle

"By heaven, these scroyles of Angiers flout you, kings,
And stand securely on their battlements,
As in a theatre, whence they gape and point
At your industrious scenes and acts of death.
--William Shakespeare, King John, Act 2, Scene 1

scroyle (noun) = a good-for-nothing scoundrel

The quote above is from the character named "Bastard". Next time you're tempted to call someone a bastard, try calling them a scoyle instead.
