about

Repartee has been defined as saying what you think after becoming a departee; saying as quick as a flash what you didn’t say until next morning. How often have you felt the need for a whimsical wisecrack or a waggish quip to put a spark in your conversation? Why be caught with your gags down? You can’t win in a battle of wits unless you are properly armed with a repertoire of rapid-fire repartee, a capsule caricature, a salty sally, or snappy comebacks, like:

He’s getting a jacket for his birthday—the strait kind.

You have a very striking face. How many times were you struck there?

She has a Supreme Court figure—no appeal.

This unique compendium of ready wit and rapid-fire repartee can be read just for the sheer fiendish fun of it. Or it can be put to work as a handy reference/sourcebook for speakers, writers, entertainers, managers or literally anyone who wishes to communicate more forcefully or become the life of the party.

Carefully categorized according to “targets,” The Giant Book of Insults can be referred to time and time again to deflate egotists, dispose of bores and demolish dummies. Far more than merely a book of humor, it represents an almost unlimited wealth of shrewdly perceptive characterizations of the foibles and frailties of human nature.
Louis A Safian, a.k.a The Master of Insult, is the author of 2000 Insults for More Occasions, 2000 More Insults, Jokes and Insults for Both Sexes, and Insults and Puns for Love and Marriage.
