Ah, yes some of the best insults of all time were done without four letter words needed for the calling of names. Here is very possible listing of some of the best of all times, but all before four letter words were the method.



SOME ARE CLASSICS
These outstanding insults are from an era before the English language got boiled down to four-letter words.
A member of Parliament to Disraeli: "Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of some unspeakable disease."
"That depends, Sir," said Disraeli, "whether I embrace your policies or your mistress."

"He had delusions of adequacy."—Walter Kerr

"He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire."—Winston Churchill

"I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure."—Clarence Darrow

"He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary."—William Faulkner (about Ernest Hemingway).

"Thank you for sending me a copy of your book; I'll waste no time reading it."—Moses Hadas

"I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it."—Mark Twain

"He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends."—Oscar Wilde

"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if you have one."—George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill

"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second ... if there is one."—Winston Churchill, in response.

"I feel so miserable without you; it's almost like having you here."—Stephen Bishop

"He is a self-made man and worships his creator."—John Bright
"I've just learned about his illness. Let's hope it's nothing trivial."—Irvin S. Cobb

"He is not only dull himself; he is the cause of dullness in others."—Samuel Johnson

"He is simply a shiver looking for a spine to run up."—Paul Keating

"In order to avoid being called a flirt, she always yielded easily."—Charles, Count Talleyrand

"He loves nature in spite of what it did to him."—Forrest Tucker

"Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it?"—Mark Twain

"His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork."—Mae West

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go."—Oscar Wilde

"He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts... for support rather than illumination."—Andrew Lang

"He has Van Gogh's ear for music."—Billy Wilder

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

And no flea infested, drugged out, limited intelligence, retarded cretins allowed to run loose without their keepers. And that most certainly included BO's jester, who hadn't yet been deposited in the local garbage dump through his progenitor's daily defecation attempts.

Every time I see that name BoJester I think about a dog who used to live around here before they started enforcing leash laws stringently. Old Bo had something to do with most of the pups in town and the owners of the "bitches" just couldn't figure it out. They had 6 ft. fences for their little girls but Bo could jump pretty high when it was worthwhile. He didn't eat at home much, either, since he knew about what time everybody fed their dogs and over the fence he went. Hell, he sometimes carried the feeding dishes home with him.

He apparently had a lot more sense, and moxie, than some of the commentators on these pages.

Contrary to mr. Bojangles's rather duplicitous statement I say this forum has him pretty well figured for an exemplar of said civil discource.

And what do you think you're doing now? Way to be an example for those 'oh-so civil' lefties that have practice a most vitriolic and venmous rhetoric permeated by the state ran media.

You pollute this thread with your hypocrisy.

Bo Clown failed to realize that he says almost nothing of any context other than his name calling. He is a totally typical prog leaner and I don't think he realizes what he is.

That appears to be his sole intent.

Since he never says anything other than his name calling, he strings more of them together than any other prog, and an occasional word against those who dislike Obama.

Old Gringo - good retort!

A long time ago I came to understand there are some people who are good for nothing except being a centerfold for Proctology Magazine and it looks like BO Jester just may be another one!
