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.

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.

God is a big part of life.

It's become a contentious topic in life for many to discuss.

Okay hear me out, Zombie apocalypse films all get it wrong.

They focus on things like ammo, cool cars, and buff people trained in hand-to-hand combat (all of which are cool things) but fail to take into consideration that the true hero of the apocalypse is likely to be... secretly freaky suburban moms.
