Description

They just can't help themselves. Movie stars, politicians, chat show hosts and others, for whom a large ego comes with the territory, seem to love hurling insults at their fellow celebrities. From Shakespeare to Joan Rivers; from Oscar Wilde to Graham Norton, many are those who have been adept at launching the carefully aimed venemous quip. But it's not only the "bitch and famous" who are experts at hurling abuse at their fellow man. We love to see what different nationalities say about each other, and how the sexes sum each other up. Indeed, the insult has found its way into the history books as something of an art form. The authors have trawled through the annals of literature, politics and entertainment to bring you an album of rude rejoinders that aim to put you in touch with your inner bitch and arm you with an aspersion for every occasion.show more
