Up Your Trash Talking Game With the Best Non-Cursing Insults
It’s things like this that make us glad the Internet is in our lives.
A thread on Reddit asked people to share their best non-swearing insult. If you’re in the market for something to shut down someone in your life who has angered, annoyed, or frustrated you, you’d be wise to have some of these at the ready.
Whether you’re talking to someone you just met at a cocktail party about politics, dealing with that brother-in-law who somehow always manages to get under your skin or just some knucklehead in a bar, these are some A+ insults. And, bonus: there are no dirty words, so people will think you’re clever because you don’t rely on salty language for shock value to make your point.
