Publisher Comments:

With more than 7,000 zingers, the right crushing retort is always at hand! No more thinking of an apt reply after it's too late: just store up a collection of choice rejoinders from over 1,000 ways to call somebody a fool and 600 ways to say someone's acting stupid. Pick from hundreds of little-known terms for know-it-alls, egotists, flatterers, and nags. Really want to hit below the belt? Try a politically incorrect insult that zaps somebody for being too fat or thin, too young or old, or too socially unacceptable, sexually inept, or spiritually impoverished. So from now on, the weird, fussy, boring, loathsome and intolerable, or merely irritating had better watch out!

Synopsis:

From more than 6,000 insulting phrases, you'll find just the right retort for anybody who deserves a special comeback. Remember the times you thought of an apt reply after it was too late? No more. Just store up your collection of choice rejoinders from over 1,000 ways to call somebody a fool and 600 ways to say how stupid they're acting, along with hundreds of little-known terms for know-it-alls, egotists, flatterers, nags, and all the other ways people are intolerable. And, if you want to hit below the belt, pick from the politically incorrect insults that zing somebody for being too fat or thin, too young or old, as well as too socially unacceptable, sexually inept, or spiritually impoverished. The patron saint of this book is Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Teddy Roosevelt's daughter, whose embroidered couch cushion read, "If you can't say anything nice about anyone, come and sit by me."

Synopsis:

A humerous collection of over 6000 slang insults, drawn from the rich history of being rude in English throughout the ages.

Synopsis:

From more than 1,000 ways to call somebody a fool to politically incorrect zingers, this is true glee for the clever and catty. “Will delight language lovers with a high-tolerance for vulgarity, ethnic slurs, and all-around contempt.”—New York Daily News. “Enlightening and entertaining.”—New York Post.

Synopsis:

More than 6,000 insulting phrases for that special comeback-or just to savor for their delicious wit! From over 1,000 ways to call somebody a fool, to hundreds of little-known terms for know-it-alls, egotists, flatterers, and nags, to below-the-belt, politically incorrect zingers, this is true glee for the clever and catty.
