    People Are Sharing The Best Insults They've Heard Without Any Swearing, And The Savagery Is Unmatched

    These hurt.

    Normally, when I insult someone, I like to swear just to throw in a little ~pizzaz~.

    But Reddit user u/Beadiest_Cape proved it doesn't always have to be that way! They asked people to share the best insults they've heard that don't use any swear words, and the responses were still certified savage. Here are just a few:

    1. "Someone once called me 'weapons-grade stupid.' That made me laugh pretty good."

    2. "Straight from Shakespeare: 'I wish we could become better strangers.'"


    3. "You're impossible to underestimate."


    4. "I had a teacher tell some kid, 'Nothing you have to say is of any anyone.' He was an odd teacher who kinda talked like that, but it was his version of savage. The room lost its shit in unison."


    5. “I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you.”

    6. "You sound like a pizza cutter — all edge and no point."


    7. "As an outsider, what's your perspective on intelligence?"


    8. "Anyone who ever loved you was wrong."

    9. "'If you were the prize at the end of my race, I would walk backward.' —Judge Judy"


    10. "I once saw a comment that read, 'The bar was so low, it was practically a tripping hazard in hell, yet here you are dancing limbo with the devil.'"


    11. "A guy who sat behind me in English class let out a fart that reverberated off the wooden seat. The whole class heard it. The teacher said, 'That’s the most intelligent thing you’ve said all year.'"

    12. "To think you were the fastest sperm."


    13. "My favorite is, 'I think you should carry a potted plant to replace the oxygen you waste.'"


    14. "I'd insult you, but I'm afraid you wouldn't notice it."


    15. "Stop playing hard to get when you're hard to want."

    16. "You're not the dumbest person in the world, but you'd better hope they don't die."


    17. "Oh, a thought crossed your mind? It must've been a lonely journey."


    18. "You've got a great face for radio."


    19. “I'll bet when a family friend brings you up to your parents, your parents change the subject.”

    20. "If my dog looked like you, I'd shave his butt and teach him to walk backward."


    21. "How about I pay for your vasectomy?"


    22. "You’re so dense, light bends around you."


    23. And finally, "Your face looks like the human embodiment of period cramps."
