At the moment, I’m reading quite a few flame and snark threads, because they’re quite often informative, illuminating and therapeutic when they’re not making you want to send that high-powered laser-pulse message to the nearest relentless bug-eyed alien horde to just go right ahead with that hyperspace highway through the middle of the planet.
I am sometimes just totally in the mood to enjoy the creative use of language that is possible with insults. Anyone can (and does!) call another a fucking shithead (and probably throw in a gratuitously marginalising slur) when they disagree, but it’s the people who take the effort to be less predictable (and less marginalising) that truly delight. Anyway, my favourite so far today:
Considerate people think about things like [whether they’re making others uncomfortable], because thinking really isn’t that fucking hard and if you’re not going to use that lump of meat and bone at the top of your spine for anything but a hat rack, that’s your problem.
So, what particularly creative insults have you heard lately?
