    The Waitress

    The best comeback I have ever heard came from a waitress who was in my employment at the restaurant I was manager of. It goes like this. I had the night off as I had been invited to a birthday party by a wealthy acquaintance named Greg, along with a few others. It was to be a...

    Touche!

    There's a book full of 'em called "Acid Drops" by English actor/raconteur Kenneth Williams,who had a famously sharp tongue. I like one where he argued with another actor and called him something nasty. The guy said "I could never talk to anyone like that!"...

    Take That

    There are few things as satisfying as a good comeback or retort. At the very most it disarms your opponent and at the very least it annoys or stuns them. Its like winning a debate, just a bit more petty. I can admit that at least. I just cant resist the urge to counter every...

    Blow Blow Blow

    Good comebacks are great to hear. Especially when they come out of my best friend's mouth. She is a gem when it comes to comebacks. I'm thankful I've never been on the receiving end of one. But, she sometimes forgets comebacks and blows in their ear instead. Something it seems...

    Back and Forth..

    I have to agree with the others, I do enjoy a good comeback, especially when I can throw it back and forth, it's like a word game and may the best one win.

    Heheh

    apparently i am very good in a fight, with good come backs. but i dont like confrontation so i dont get to show it. a swift verbal b**** slap is my speciality.

    I posted this in another group, but I find it fitting here too. A joke someone once told me... A 19 year old boy recently joined the Army. After being away for just 4 months, he gets a letter from his girlfriend back home. In the letter, she tells him that since he's been gone...

    The Best Comeback Ever

     "Your mother wears army boots!".  This was a very good diss/comeback in the 1950's :D And my personal favorite... "Sit on it!" said by the character Fonzie on the show "Happy Days".

    A good comeback is a wonderful thing. Last year (only like a few months ago lol), my fiance and another man at his work were teaching a trainee, and my guy gave a direction that sounded vaguley off-colour. The other man laughed and said 'That's what your wife said when she saw...

    Except

    As much as I love the cleverness of a good comeback. I'm not so great with them myself. Not always quick enough to get one in. Except for once in a while on accident.

    *You're* His Present?

    This happened a couple years ago. It was in December (I think the week before we got out for Christmas vacation), and my friend was wearing a string tied around her stomach. "I'm my boyfriend's present," she said. "Did you keep the receipt?" I asked.
