1001 Insults, Put-Downs, & Comebacks

Book Description

“I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it.”—Groucho Marx

An insult can be offensive and infuriating, but it means nothing if you have a better comeback. 1001 Insults, Put-Downs, and Comebacks gathers together the very sharpest of these barbs from a wide variety of sources, with some of the wickedest put-downs from the literary, political, and entertainment worlds, along with many others.
