The Insults Thread

  1. Apr 10, 2003 #1
    Do you know how some people will try to taunt you with corrupted versions of your name? I am pretty immune to insults directed at me, but the quasi-puns that some people produce are terribly base and contrived. (I myself can easily derive equally derogatory alterations, with similar conotations, that are comparatively subtle and clever.) They cross the line when they insult the art of word play.

    Does anybody else ever think the thought (not necessarily about bad puns), "That was so pathetic. I could insult me better than that."

    Well, sure, but I think it just insults the person who did it (that their "insult" was so pathetic). It insults their intelligence, in your eyes, and that's all that matters. If it makes you feel better, ask them something like, "is that the best you can think of?". However, I think that to see them fail so miserably is comforting enough for me.
