Great insults and put-downs. by johnnythemonkey on 6 April 2008 9:19am
 
This one concerns Rex Harrison ( sorry Missy ! ).
First the background :
I've just been reading an article about Harrison. The writer describes him thus, 'He was cordially loathed by almost everyone'. And follows with, 'He was an abusive, philandering, self-serving, gluttonous egomaniac with a blind indifference to the thoughts and feeling of others. '
Anyway. One night after a performance of My Fair Lady, an elderly woman was standing alone in the rain outside the stage door and asked for his autograph. Rex told her to 'sod off', which so enraged the old woman she promptly rolled up her programme and hit him with it. Fellow actor Stanley Holloway, who had witnessed the scene, remarked that it was the first time ' the fan has hit the shit '.

Anyone got any favourite insults ?

I read that article yesterday, I never realized Rex Harrison was such a mean man. Henry Higgins fooled me.

I suspect some of the slower ones amongst you ( i.e most of you ) did'nt get the put-down.
Attention at the back:
'The FAN has hit the SHIT. '

Sorry folks, this is not me now! This one came a few years back when I still had some anger to let out. From the creative mind of Lounge Trekker:

"You would be a great poster-boy for abortion magazine".

Polite Trekker

ooooooooh, Lounge Trekker's got bite... ouch!

I'm not big on insults because I think they usually do more harm than good and the world is already out of balance that way, but - I do think of them on occasion, when inspired... so here is a fleeting one I have thought of that I will edit after a few days...

You can stick your opinions back up your a** where they really belong.

I like this one I heard on M*A*S*H: "If my dog was as ugly as you, I'd paint a face on his butt and make him walk backwards!"

And my all-time favorite from "A Fish Called Wanda": "To call *you* stupid would be an insult to stupid people!"

I'm sure John Cleese is a veritable gold mine of these things.

I'll save my best ones for when they're needed here. ( Anne will be back posting soon ;) )
