— Ace Referring to gay marriage in Sweden, he quoted Matthew "Ye shall know them by their fruits." The Rolling Stone reporter interviewing him thought he was making a joke; he says he wasn't, just quoting the Bible.
"Fruits." That's such an old-school put-down it's practically new-school.
I like how put-downs go in cycles. "Hump" and "tool" were old; then they kind of became cool again, just because no one was saying them. (Except for 60 year old alkies at the BPOE, but who listens to them.)
"Douchebag" seems very played. "Jagoff" seems like it's ready to come back into style. Ten years ago, you couldn't give jagoff put-downs away. Now maybe they're priced right for a big gain.
These are the things I notice.

"I wish I knew how to quit your banana!"
See..its a "fruit" talking about a "fruit" in a "fruity" movie.
It works on so many levels while not working on any at all!
Spurwing taught me how to do that.

Nowadays it is used in the "fuck off" type of verbiage when someone doesn't want to curse.
How was it used back in the olden times?

Even my etymology is way before its time.
Goddamnit. Mom, give me my burping and pacifier. I'm done.
Much better. Ni'ni, all.

Honor the language Ace, don't abandon its best elements in the interest of trendy modernism.

BTW, it's really Matthew 7:20 that comes closest to his comment.

These have kind of lost their flare. But one that will always be there, ready when you need it: Dingleberry. It's insulting yet can be used by kindergarteners through senior citizens alike.
As for the Brokeback Mt. thing, "Orange you glad I put it in your ass again?!"
Or there's a hemmorhoid joke about a bunch of grapes, if you want to go there.

How did that stupid European term "wanker" become popular here in America? I blame the Internet.

I should warn everyone that I've already twice heard 'brokeback' used as an an adjective, as in "Is there some sort of 'brokeback' situation going on with you guys?"

I like the word turd. "Check out that dude. Pure turd."
I also enjoy odd combinations. "Ah shit, I just broke the damn thing! Son of a fuck!" "Hold on, I'm coming soon as I get this motherassed shoe on my foot."

Worry about me? Certainly not. I may be conservative but I am fun, fun, fun!! I'm funny too! Really. In real life! No matter what some stupid study says.
That link made me laugh so hard my dog ran up to see if I was ok.

It doesn't seem to be going over that big among the more sane moonbats though I'm sure the DUmmies just love it.

In related news, you guys should really see "The Aristocrats". Can't believe Bob Saget was allowed to work with children all those years...

KC Star, discussing the Chiefs Football season, I believe the statement was along the lines of... You don't have to be a rocket surgeon to know you need to score points to win a football game...
Still not sure if it was deliberate, but its one I use regularly for less than clever people (damn Rocket Surgeons).
