The Perks of Using Creative Insults

The prospect of tossing out an insult might not sound that funny, but it's all in the delivery. And if you're worried about your intention getting lost in translation—don't. According to The Smithsonian, a sizable percentage of our communication is coded in sarcasm, and that's something we start picking up on as young as five years old.

The primary benefit of using insults or roasts is that it allows us to say certain truths in gentler ways. Consider a parent calling their child's untidy room a "pig sty" or some other comically obvious exaggeration. Well it's not just parents who rely on this kind of humor to deliver certain messages or requests.

Funny insults come in handy with friends, partners, and even sometimes—sometimes—in the workplace. Below, we've put together some material that you might find useful. With any luck, you'll find the right words for your situation.
