#' "thou", and completeth fracoþ sentences with varying punctuation.
#' @md
#' @param thou if `TRUE` then the insults are prefixed with "thou"
#' @param sentence if `TRUE` then the insults are prefixed with "Thou art a" and end with
#' punctuation. See `exclaim` for how to specify which punctuation. The value of
#' `sentence` overrides `thou`.
#' @param exclaim if `TRUE` and `sentence` == `TRUE` then the generated sentence will be
#' ended with a "!" else it shall be ended with a ".". This parameter is ignored
#' if `sentence` is `FALSE`.
