Shakespeare was great with the “yo mama” jokes. A couple examples:

Painter: “Y’are a dog.”
Apemantus: “Thy mother’s of my generation. What’s she, if I be a dog?”

Timon of Athens, Act I, scene I

Demetrius: “Villain, what hast thou done?”
Aaron: “That which thou canst not undo.”
Chiron: “Thou hast undone our mother.”
Aaron: “Villain, I have done thy mother.”

Titus Andronicus, Act IV, scene II
