What’s Your Favorite Insult?

Sometimes throwing a good, rollicking insult in your head is the only thing that will make you feel better about a particularly crappy person. Whether it be the bitchy checkout lady who will not let you return the shirt you purchased just yesterday because you don’t have a receipt (happened), or a lame dude on the subway who needlessly rubbed up against you (double happened). But insults, the ones that work for you, are a very particular and unique thing. For instance, my insult of choice is “baby genius,” derived from the 1999 movie starring Kathleen Turner and Christopher Lloyd of the same name. (Which, just so you know, has been described as a “live action ‘Rugrats.’”) I LOVE IT. It’s condescending and patronizing, it’s not a swear word, so you can say it aloud and not offend any grandmas. Like this: “Who is the baby genius who decided to leave all the windows open and turn the air conditioner on?” See what I’m saying?
