How to zoomorphically slur the people in your life

Tired of restricting yourself to the overused ‘bovine’? Chris Love has some great suggestions that will expand the biological diversity of your insults:

ant: formicine: ex. “Overwhelmed by the formicine crowds at the officeplex, we sought refuge in the nearest bar.”

The most important of these adjectives is obviously “hircine.” Of, pertaining to, or resembling a goat. Ex. “The man created a new alternative energy source that reduced conflict in the world, and saved the planet. He also wrote a symphony for the ages. As hircine a fellow as you’ll ever find.”

You owe it to yourself and to those you slur to check out the entire list.
