  • Best insults - high brow

    Sometimes I want to hurl an insult at someone and get a little tongue tied. Especially at work, amongst parentals or in front of the innocent little kiddies.

    Help me out.

    I'm looking for the best insults ever. This thread is HIGH BROW so has roolz:

    - No profanity
    - No racial/religious references etc

    These need to be the kind of well thought out insults that you could use anywhere. Where the sentiment of the insult is very very clear but where I can't be busted/fired/executed for saying naughty stuff.

    Have you got a hypothetical situation?

      It all depends on the situation, I don't think you can have one single "atomic bomb" insult.
      If you get tongue tied and can't deliver, maybe you shouldn't be attempting highbrow insults?

            My favourite is Winston Churchill's riposte when Lady Astor said "Winston you are drunk" he looked at her and said "and you my dear are ugly...but in the morning i shall be sober!"

            Pure class

              Mmmkay, this isn't really trying to arm me for a scenario. I just want people to start hurling insults. But classy ones.

                Borrow from Churchill, and Wilde CSF - real wit with slashing sharp undertones...

                    I couldn't give a rotund rodent's rectum what your opinion is.

                    You my friend, are perambulating the circumference of veracity.
                    In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.
                    Its the little things that make the difference

                      I always liked "I wouldn't want to enter into a battle of wits with an unarmed man" (or similar)

                        Is this thread a Raffles-free zone?

                            I once used this statement to our GM:
                            Godfather: "Can you do this, or should I get my son in to do it?"
                            GM: "What does your son do?"
                            Godfather: "he goes to school, he is 10 years old, but he could do a better job than you."

                              My Dearest Simon,
                              I write this not as a fellow forum goer but as a man who has tried to shape his life in your image.

                              I don't think I could have chosen a better role model to help me through the difficult decisions life throws at me on my journey. Your inspiration has been a guiding light when I am but surrounded by darkness.

                              What good would a life of aspiration be, without those moments of reflection, critical self analysis and guidance.
                              So, here I sit ruminating on all the changes I have enacted in my life since I met you.
                              I have begun to believe in myself, be positive about my physical state, listen to what others have to say, be helpful and polite.
                              Then it hit me, after all these years, I have reached the pinnacle, I am no longer aspiring to be like you, I AM like you....

                              Almost! I must, it seems, seek your counsel one further time.

                              I have taxed the very bowels of my soul searching for an answer to what I feel is the last question, the question that will complete me!

                              Why is it, when I have remade myself in your image, does my mother now refer to me as; A supercilious, porcine, intrusive, controlling, condescending twat with all the personal ambition of a children's crosswalk attendant.

                              Yours in anticipation,
