Product Overview

A collection of often impolite but always witty taunts from the world's masters of the studied insult.
An insult can be bad-mannered, offensive, and infuriating, but everyone 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:
"He had a mind so fine that no idea could violate it."--T. S. Eliot on Henry James
"I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it."--Groucho Marx
"A car is useless in New York, essential everywhere else. The same with good manners."
--Mignon McLaughlin
"Although golf was originally restricted to wealthy, overweight Protestants, today it's open to anybody who owns hideous clothing."--Dave Barry
"George Steinbrenner is the center of evil in the universe."--Ben Affleck on the New York Yankees owner
