    How to use "Scurrilous" in context?

    The English word "scurrilous" derives from the Latin word "scurrilis" meaning "twisted, knotted, or cursive." Originally, a scurrilous remark was one that was intended to be malicious or ridiculing, but nowadays it is simply mean and mockingly satirical. In the 16th century, an example of a scurrilous painting was the five-panel Protestant Reformation series, "The Vanities of the Human Soul," which depicted humans with grotesquely enlarged heads.
