Pronunciation: in-sult-ant

Sentence: "I have spent many years honing my insulting skills, so your suggestion that I'm ripping you off is, well, it's an insult, an aspersion, an impertinence."

"Quite clearly she is excellent at her job, let's get her back next time."

terrible, useless word. I'm giving you my vote even though you don't deserve it! - galwaywegian, 2007-04-23: 06:46:00

Obviously, galwaywegian works for a very large, very successful, and very expensive insulting firm. So begrudgingly, I will follow his lead and proffer my two cents to petaj. - wordmeister, 2007-04-23: 10:08:00

petaj Thanks for the reprehensible comments. Is that the best you can do in the way of profijeering. And you call yourselves scornstars! Hmmph. - petaj, 2007-04-23: 18:45:00

I agree with galwaywegian. Your word is a boil on the verbotobutt, a verbotocyst. My vote was just pity points, don't take it too seriously. - purpleartichokes, 2007-04-23: 19:23:00

Pronunciation: ku-stom-a-fa-ser

Sentence: The customeffacer ridiculed the client for being to cheap to buy a brand-name power tool with a 5-year warranty.

Etymology: from "customer" as well as "custom" since the customeffacer must create custom insults for individual situations. Also from the word efface, which obliterates all the joy the customer believed to have found in the "bargain."

That gentleman bears a striking resemblance to Bruce McCulloch.

I hope Mr. McCulloch isn't insulted... ~ James

I've often noticed that the verbotoons have striking similarities to famous people. I wonder if the artist uses reference photos...

As Kurt Vonnegut said of his novels, this artwork is fiction and "All persons living or dead are purely coincidental, and should not be construed." Except of course, for the drawing of Vonnegut himself, which is meant to be who it appears to be. ~ James

ErWenn - 2007-04-24: 00:11:00
Everybody's coincidental? All 12 billion of us? I like the sound of that. And I definitely agree that you shouldn't construe anybody. It's just not nice, even if they are already dead.

CONGRATS! INSULTANT is simple yet effective. I wish i could learn not to use a large word when a diminutive one will do. Economy is everything.
