What is your favorite pejorative?

What is your favorite pejorative?



Please mention how or if you use it, or in what situation. And I’d rather not have sarcasm.

But Kevin probably has a great favorite pejorative!

I really don’t have a favorite so much as favorites, depending on what fits. But I am really feeling “Thou spongy half-faced apple-john!” right now.

My all time favorite, overheard by my husband at work. A co-worker was talking to his estranged wife on the phone, and he called her a “lascivious, dog-fucking whore.”

I really don’t have one off the top of my head, but moments like this make me wish that my sister used Fluther. She says the most offensive and hilarious shit I’ve ever heard, like “cock juggling thundercunt” for example.

“Scruffy-looking nerfherder” holds a special place in my heart; like autographed footballs, I leave it on its pedestal when I find myself in need , and ad-lib. “Oafish baboon” sounds like it would work well.
I feel that it is important to refrain from profanity, even when I’m exceptionally angry. Since none of my standard vocabulary suffices, and I have restricted my access to the higher-level expletives, my rage is frequently punctuated with oddly-placed pauses.

My grasp of psychology grants me a certain pejorative.
I cant explain when and why I use it but I can say that I don’t always use it wisely and I need to take care to keep my friends.

I’m hoping I can recall some of these the next time those delightful witnesses of jehova come calling. Pissy faced spunkbubble may be another option.

You were born to a moose and raised in the wilds!

I really miss the roommate that came up with that.

Moron. I like the way it sounds

A friend’s demented grandmother used to say to people, “You rotten gazebo!” I’ve never had the nerve to use it but I think it is my favorite pejorative.

For women who have truly disgusted me with their promiscuity (mostly it was the dirty girls in high school): Cum Guzzling Gutter Slut!

One of my friends called someone a “slut-bucket”, which I find really funny and exceedingly insulting all at the same time. I’ve never found the need to use it, though.

Cock mongling thundercunt.


Hand-wringing pussy of the utmost bitchitude.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard you and my sister would get along famously, apparently.

@TheOnlyNeffie, dude… I didn’t even see your previous answer when I posted mine… that’s awesome!

I’ve always loved the way that southerners will say something derogatory (but usually true) about someone and then add at the end, “Bless her heart.”

Example: “Poor Betty-Sue. It looks like she lost an argument with a weed-whacker with that new haircut. Bless her heart.”

Also like Monty Python’s, “Your mother was a hampster and your father smelt of elderberries!”

One of my favorites is one I imagined that the alliteratively alleging asshole, Spiro Agnew would have directed at me: pot-puffing punk.

TexasDude's avatar

@Kardamom, actually, if you listen closely, it’s not “Bless” their little heart, but actually “Blest” their little heart. And Wal Mart is actually “The Wal Mark.”

Kardamom's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Yeah you’re right LOL!

@Brian1946 Wow, that’s a name I’ve not heard in many years- Spiro Agnew!

Does anyone know why the term “elderberries” was used by the Monty Python gang to suggest something stinky? I’ve eaten them and smelled them and they smell yummy like boysenberries?

Nullo's avatar

@Kardamom If it helps, I don’t think that I’d want to smell yummy like boysenberries.

Then again, it might just be a case of ineffectual taunting. Those were more juvenile than anything else.

Kardamom's avatar

@Nullo I like that! Ineffectual taunting. That’s a great term.

I love Muppet! I love it because it doesn’t sound as pejorative as I actually intend it to be!
