From careful instructions on how and when to throw a verbal punch to an expertly curated collection of the best insults in history, snark connoisseur Lawrence Dorfman does his absolute worst, dishing out hundreds of clever insults for all situations and occasions in this uproarious little book. "Next time I see you, remind me not to talk to you," quips Groucho Marx, while Teddy Roosevelt charges "He has no more backbone than a chocolate éclair," and Gloria Steinem assays, "She's a waterbug on the surface of life." After decades of experience in publishing, at houses like Simon & Schuster, Penguin, and Harry N. Abrams, Dorfman has learned a thing or two about the snide remark, or snark, made respectable (if not any kinder) by wits from Dorothy Parker to Mark Twain. His popular Snark Handbook series collects the most effective and memorable examples of snarky wit on a given subject—with a thought or two of his own—in compact editions with old-fashioned covers and illustrations.
