    “My Lord, I find thy face apelike and thy form misshapen. Thy beard, moreover, is an offense against decency, resembling more closely the scabrous fir which doth decorate the hinder portion of a mongrel dog than a proper adornement for a human face. Is it possible that thy mother, seized by some wild lechery, did dally at some time past with a randy goat?” -Mandorallen from the Seeress of Kell by David eddings

    I don't even recall ever meeting David Eddings. Is he an outdoorsman, lol?

    Good one. Reminds me of the greatest insult in cinematic history from Monty Python's The Holy Grail: "Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!"

    After the insults, I think they started launching cows over the castle walls.

    Great movie.

    I kind'a like the insult: "You have the brain of a drunken tick."

    or "you're so stupid that if your brain were gasoline you couldn't power a flea's motorcycle around the inside of a dry Cheerio."

    I've preferred:
    "You are a vexation to the spirit."
    "You're a poor excuse for a poor excuse."
    "You're a hemorrhoid on the a-hole of life."

    "You dirt-eating piece of slime, you scum-sucking pig, you son of a motherless goat!"

    Was always partial to this one.

    Gotta be careful who you sling those at. In the marine corps we had a caution about having a crocodile mouth and a humming bird ass.

    "Don't let your mouth write a check that your body can't cash."
    or
    "That must be your ass speaking, 'cuz I'm sure your mouth knows better."
