‘Swounds, show me what thou’lt do.

Hamlet! Getting salty! ‘Swounds! Zounds!
AND making a contraction to form “thou’lt”? That is also fairly salty somehow. I mean, it’s as simple as you’ll but seems much saucier, somehow, than you’ll. Feels like you might as well say “Thou wilt” – because thou’lt is a little tricky on the tongue. But Hamlet’s getting salty here. Swearing at a funeral. In front of a priest. And the royal family.
