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 Divulge Their Favorite 'Rich Person Hobbies'

We've all played the "What I would do if I was rich" game.

Admit it.

You've imagined a trillion scenarios for what you would do (after you paid off your debt, of course) with wads of cash. In your imagination, you've given money to friends, started charities or businesses, and probably bought your fair share of imaginary real estate.

And that's all just the basics. We haven't even gotten into all the rich-people hobbies you could take up like SCUBA golfing, sailboat customization, or learning how to melt down antique jewelry to make gem-encrusted bongs for yoga Wednesdays at the gym-slash-coffeehaus.

And those colors can be stomach turning.

Then respect goes out the window.

"I can't even look at you anymore."
