    Reminds me of a series of great insults in real-life history between Lady Astor (the wealthy American Nancy Astor, who married Lord Astor becoming the Viscountess Astor and also Britain's first female MP) and Winston Churchill, who were notoriously at odds.

    She responded to a question from Churchill about what disguise he should wear to a masquerade ball by saying, "Why don't you come sober, Prime Minister?"

    Astor once famously told Churchill, "If you were my husband, I'd poison your tea." He replied, "Madam, if you were my wife, I'd drink it!"

    On another occasion, upon hearing Astor's name, Churchill sniffed, "If she's got to call herself a lady, she ain't."

    You'd have to give that man a wit to make him a half-wit!

    Remember our HS coach yelling at a receiver after he dropped an easy pass in practice, don't know why but it stuck with me......" You couldn't catch a cold running buck-ass naked through Alaska in the winter time"

    I remember hearing more from Lady Astor and Churchill:
    LA " Mr. Churchill, you're drunk!"
    WC "You're ugly, but tomorrow I will be sober."

    I heard one that apparently was uttered by a manuscript editor.

    "I'm in the smallest room of my house and I have your work in front of me. It shall soon be behind me."
