Actually, Shakespeare never used this specific phrase. If he had, the gramtically correct way to say it would be "I bite my thumb at thee!"
I will bite my thumb at them, which is disgrace to them if they bear it.

--Shakespeare (from Romeo and Juliet)

As has been noted before, it has been used by Shakespeare.
