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.

People Share TV Shows From Their Childhood That No One Seems To Remember
Hanna-Barbera Cartoons

When I was a kid, I would occasionally watch this show called Big Bag. It went off the air more than 20 years ago and it seemed to only play at five or six in the morning. If I happened to wake up early, I'd catch it. It was targeted toward preschool viewers and was fun and silly, a partnership between Cartoon Network and what is now the Sesame Workshop.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who remembers it existed. But I'm not the only one with this kind of dilemma.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor LegitimateMangoHeir asked the online community,

"What's a show from your childhood that no one else seems to remember?"

Finding the right pajamas can be a fairly stressful ordeal.

Which is perhaps why some people choose to forgo pajamas all together, and sleep in the nude.

No doubt saving people hundreds of dollars on what they might otherwise have spent on a pair of pajamas.

But in addition to being economical, people no doubt have countless reasons for their natural choice of sleepwear.

Or lack thereof.

Redditor -TheMidpoint- was curious to hear why people opted to sleep in the buff, leading them to ask:

"People who sleep naked, why?"
