The obscure word of the week is dandiprat

This week’s obscure English word is dandiprat.

It’s a sixteenth century word meaning somebody who is young or insignificant. I quite like it – there seems all kinds of opportunity for some outrageous Shakespearean insults with it. ‘Thou impudent dandiprat!’

Your challenge: write a Shakespearian sentence or two in the comments, using this word.
