The Ultimate Book of Insults (Geoff Tibballs)
It may be true what George Bernard Shaw said, that "silence is the most perfect expression of scorn", but it is also undoubtedly true, as Lord Chesterfield maintained, that "an injury is much sooner forgotten than an insult". Here you'll find all the abuse, snubs, taunts and put-downs you could possible need from Shakespearean bombast to contemporary sniping.
"I have had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it."
"He was happily married - but his wife wasn't."
"He always finds himself lost in thought - it's unfamiliar territory."
