7 Old Fashioned Insults to Curse With Style

A graceful taunt is worth a thousand insults.

~ Louis Nizer

I'm one of those antiquated characters who believes fondly that a language's vocabulary is way to vast and handsome to be wrecked with cheap and common obscenities - anyhow, on the other hand I'm also quite fervent and, on those rare occasion when fury overruns me, I'm wholly pleased and charmed to have these few but sharp, elegant insults of the fine and always sparkling English tongue. Perhaps they are useful for you as well - I shall warn you: nobody will understand you - yet you'll surely feel released... and smarter.
