In Brett's book he published some non profane insults from the likes of good ol' Teddy Roosevelt. I gave the book to my nephew so I can't quote them at the moment. What I would like to see in this thread is either new or quoted non profane zingers that attack character and behaviour without completely loosing decorum.

Churchill and WC Fields had the best

I'm French, so I always go for "your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries !", but maybe that's just me...

Excellent.

Hahahaha

Very Nice

An old classic!!  I love it!!!
Knickets!

I fart in your general direction!

hahaha   never gets old

I was JUST going to say "I fart in your general direction!"

I am always uncertain if the insult was worth it if they don't understand it.

I'm not sure how much insults are really meant for the target — it's for you (catharsis) and people around you (entertainment). I tend to see a proper burn as a spectator sport (your aim should be to say something that people will later quote at parties in awe) and you shouldn't be there to just say mean things to hurt their feelings. That's simply not a good use of your time. If you're going to insult someone do it as a joke and at least get a laugh from your audience: make it productive.

 

Along those lines I think if you're scraping the bottom of the barrel for insults (personal tragedies, recently dead family members, that sort of thing) it's not clear what the insult is worth even if they do understand it. You're not going to make yourself look good by going there so why even bother.

Rituals of a supportive nature.

When one hears of the occult, mythologies, and "pagan" religion, coming from the Christianized western world, it's not a good thing that comes to mind. It is, however, that most occult persons align themselves with "White magic", and even Satanism has a Ritual of Compassion, attached below... But I've done many rituals of compassion, and in the end even if you're not a MAGIC MISSILE person, it's still very comforting to one that someone took time out of their lives, did a ritual - a set…See More

Prayers and Ideas for struggling men.

I know this isn't your typical theological question, but I feel it can be helpful. I personally need some prayer. I am struggling with guidance. I seem go be having some relationship trouble. I firmly believe God put this woman in my life to be wife one day (when funds and scheduling allow), but I keep picking fights about stupid things. I would like some prayer for guidance and how I should act. Thanks guys. I hope this thread ends up being a way for all of us guys to ask for some prayers.
