Insults tend to be the cherry on top of a grievance. To quote Alice Roosevelt Longworth, "If you have nothing nice to say about someone, sit right next to me." She'd have loved these...
1. Billy Wilder
2. Forrest Tucker
3. Mae West
4. Oscar Wilde
5. Winston Churchill
6. Paul Keating
7. Julian Rubinstein
8. Groucho Marx
9. Mark Twain
What’s your favorite time-tested zinger?
Best one I ever heard was from a friend of my father. Said friend was blind and into CB radio (this was wayyy back in the day). One evening someone decided to jam his signal every time he tried to broadcast. Frustrated, and hampered by laws prohibiting him from using blue language, he finally burst out “I hope your mother runs out from under the porch and bites you!!”
Groucho was the king of insults! Including directed towards himself (I wouldn’t join any club that would have me as a member!)
I love the open minded insult, I definitely gotta try that one!
Forest Tucker was the best.
