address on it?"

I have always loved this one.

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen.

Hi,
It's really a cool collection of insulting examples. I think one should use simple statements to convey your feelings or messages. Though it will be seen as rude but it will convey your point.

thanks
