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.

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

Don't Bank On A Reprieve

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

"Your learning curve is a horizontal line."

– 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."

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.

We are in a fragile place right now when it comes to bringing children into this world.

Not everybody is meant to be a parent.

In fact, many people should never be one.

So I find it commendable how many of us acknowledge that and chose not to procreate.

Redditorucinangel wanted to everyone to vent about why children are a "no thank you" in their book of life. They asked:

"What is the biggest reasons why you don’t want children?"

The world is full of crazy people.

It feels like that more and more as I meander in my local shopping center.

But a little crazy I can deal with.

I want to discuss the people who leave an imprint of fear.

The people who lack empathy, remorse... and a soul.

You met many of those?

Redditor playmesomethinnice wanted to see who would fess up and discuss the person or persons that leave us shook.They asked:

"What type of people are you scared of?"

There are just some people who need a good, spiteful talking to.

The amount of poor behavior I witness on the daily is astonishing.

How are we like this in these modern times?

Instead of serving shame, we're serving justice for improper deeds.

Be a better human.

"What do you think people actually deserve to be shamed for?"
