1001 Insults, Put-Downs, and Comebacks
By

Rating
An insult can be offensive and infuriating, but we’ ve all had those moments where we just wish we had come up with a good one. Even better, having the
perfect comeback to one of these rude remarks brings us all the personal
satisfaction in the world. 1001 Insults, Put-downs, & 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 has become the oldest living cute boy in the world.”
— Anna Quindlen on Paul McCartney
“ I’ ve had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn’ t it.” — Groucho Marx
“ When you go to the mind reader, do you get 8221; — David Letterman
Clare Booth Luce stood aside and gestured Dorothy Parker to precede her through a door, saying “ Age before beauty.” Parker swept on, saying only
“ Pearls before swine.”
“ George Steinbrenner is the center of evil in the universe.”
— Ben Affleck on the New York Yankees owner
