Make-me-laugh list, episode 2

Too many posts to include in the previous make-me-laugh list. I love, love clever insults. I don't often get a chance to use them, but they're still useful as exasperation letting-outers.

I love funny insults too...especially when people don't quite get them. Like when we play hangman at work and I put up the word "Persnickety" and no one quite gets that a lot of the people in my building fit this too a "t". :) Plus it's just a fun word to say.

But this is also why I love Shakespeare...if only I could remember all of his greatly worded slams on people. :)
