People Break Down Their Favorite Insults Of All-Time

It's easy to rib someone well enough to leave them stumped and eventually left to admit defeat.


But beware, for you can never underestimate certain people after you slammed them with your sardonic wit.

They may surprise you with a retort so sharp, it cuts you on the inside and makes you bleed out all of your remaining wit.

Curious to hear from those who you've gotta hand it to for their brilliant digs, Redditor GeorgeTH281 asked:

"What’s your favorite insult?"

Insulting one's intelligence seems to be a default when it comes to roasting.

The Fight Is On

"You have 2 brain cells left and they are both fighting for third place."

– Eclipsethenextone

Don't Bank On A Reprieve

"A penny for your thoughts would be a ripoff."

– TheChainLink2

Flat-Lining

"Your learning curve is a horizontal line."

– idekmnn

This Follows

"You couldn’t pour water out of a boot with the instructions on the heel."

– nevermyrrh

Doesn't Get Any Lower Than This

"If your IQ was any lower, i'd have to water you."

– Silmarill

No Visual Aid

"I have neither the patience nor the crayons to explain this to you...."

– s0n1cm0nk3y

Frequent Offender

"You make me believe in reincarnation, because nobody could become that stupid in one lifetime."

– dirtbagdano

These hit below the belt, but you can't help but admire the sardonic wit.

Waste Of Oxygen

"There is a tree working hard to make oxygen, and here you are, ruining all of that effort."

– Rich_Bench9594

The Artistic Insult

"Even Bob Ross would call you a mistake."

– WellEndowedPunk

Ratio Imbalance

"Does your a** get jealous of all the sh*t that comes out of your mouth?"

– ChinaCatRider92

Unwanted

"The tide wouldn’t take you out."

– mmratic

Missing Person

"Somewhere a village is missing an idiot."

– JuryBorn

We would like to think most of these are used in jest among friends, which would elicit good-spirited laughter.

But they would also make for an effective slam aimed at your worst adversary. It's all in the delivery–especially in front of their friends.

No two people share exactly the same likes and interests.

But on occasion, one might find themselves being among the few, if not the sole members of a certain fan club.

Indeed, while Cats earned a place on the list of the worst movies of all time, its 19% score on Rotten Tomatoes suggests that there are a handful of people who actually liked it.

Or while many people dread having to clean their homes, some simply can't wait to get started, and will look for any and every opportunity to do so.

Redditor StardustNova_ was curious to hear where members of the Reddit community found themselves in a distinct minority of appreciation, leading them to ask:

"What's something you like that the vast majority people hate?"

It's usually a good feeling to be "on top".

To be found at the top of the list of a notable or unique accomplishment.

Though having the distinction of being in the top 0.1 percent of something might not always be something to brag about, resulting in some keeping this distinction to themselves.

If only because some people might be unusually fascinated by their so-called "accomplishment", that they'll never stop being bombarded by questions.

Redditor ImLostInTheForrest was curious to hear if any members of the Reddit community believed they were in the 0.1 percent of anything, be it commendable, bizarre or unfortunate, leading them to ask:

"What’s something you believe you may be in the 0.1% of?"
