Keeping my eye out

...looking for a time when it might be possible to use this quotation in ordinary conversation. Only ... would it be an "ordinary" conversation that would provide such an opportunity?

On my Google homepage, I get daily Shakespearean Insults. They often make me laugh, but shoot! THIS one's a prize! Now ... when to use it ... when to use it ... I'd have to be pretty mad ...
You starvelling, you eel-skin, you dried neat's-tongue, you bull's-pizzle, you stock-fish--O for breath to utter what is like thee!-you tailor's-yard, you sheath, you bow-case, you vile standing tuck!

-Taken from: Henry IV, part I
