13 things about Dane Bramage

13 Insults with Class

I get many things from friends in email. Karl sent me this list of insults, but they aren't your typical "Your Momma wears boxers" type insult. These are a thinking man's insult. Now just let me say that I have no way of knowing whether the people these quotes are attributed to actually said them. So if you know something and I don't then leave a comment and just take these in the spirit they are given, a mean vicious snide spirit!

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

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

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

  4. "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

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

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

  7. "He is a self-made man and worships his creator." -- John Bright

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

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

  10. "I've just learned about his illness. Let's hope it's nothing trivial." -- Irvin S. Cobb

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

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

  13. "There's nothing wrong with you that reincarnation won't cure." -- Jack E. Leonard

People don't insult each other like they used to. The email had another 15 insults so I will save them for another T13.
