1001 Insults, Put-Downs, and Comebacks by Price, Steven D.

The stupid persons idea of a clever person.--Elizabeth Bowen on Aldous Huxley That insolent little ruffian, that crapulous lout. When he quitted a sofa, he left behind him a smear.--Norman Cameron on Dylan Thomas An insult can be bad-mannered, offensive, and infuriating, but every one of us has surely had one of those moments when we just wish we had thought of a good one. Unlike most of us, however, there are those who always seem to have the perfect comeback. 1001 Insults, Put-Downs, and Comebacks gathers together the very sharpest of these barbs from a wide variety of sources, with some of the wickedest put-downs from the literary, political, and entertainment worlds, along with many others, including: -A large shaggy dog unchained scouring the beaches of the world and baying at the moon.--Robert Louis Stevenson on Walt Whitman -The triumph of sugar over diabetes.--George Nathan on J. M. Barrie -He was another one that was a complete fizzle . . . Pierce didnt know what was going on, and even if he had, he wouldnt have known what to do about it.--Harry Truman on Franklin Pierce -He is such an infernal liar.--Ulysses Grant on Andrew Johnson -Just the omission of Jane Austens books alone would make a fairly good library out of a library that hadnt a book in it.--Mark Twain -Ive had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasnt it.--Groucho Marx -Every time I look at you I get a fierce desire to be lonesome.--Oscar Levant
