It's always sad when people don't have anything better to do than throw insults at people.

And yet it happens far too often, between people who see each other on a fairly regular basis, as well as complete strangers.

It's always a good idea to avoid sinking to their level when this happens, and just ignore them and walk on by.

That being said, there is very little more satisfying than coming back at them with just the right choice of words, and leaving them in stunned silence.

Redditor random-joe-shmoe was curious to learn the all time best comebacks people heard to any and all insults, leading them to ask:
"What is the greatest comeback to an insult you’ve ever heard?"

Yo Mamma!

"My best friend: After an argument with some kid from our school in a shop we began walking away down the street..."

"Kid: 'where you going?'"

"Friend: 'your moms house'."

"Kid: 'my mom lives the other way idiot'."

"Friend: 'Nah, i meant your real mom'.”- FourShott

It's sad when people have nothing better to do than belittle others.

Making it hard to feel that they get just what they deserve when someone school's them with a clever comeback.

Hopefully teaching them to use their time a bit more wisely going forward.

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.
