Burn: one girl’s guide to the ultimate comebacks

Burn: one girls guide to the ultimate comebacks

Julia Vastano, Assistant Editor-in-Chief

Sometimes, it’s hard to think on your feet. You’re in an argument and you have no idea how to come back. You end up standing there dumbfounded, with a big L on your forehead. How many times have you scrolled through texts from an argument and thought “Gosh darnit I should have said ______”, or been laying in bed trying to fall asleep and thought of the comeback you never said? It happens to the best of us.

So, to satisfy all of your comeback-get back needs, here’s a list of the top comebacks of all time.

6) “I’ve been called worse things by better men.” – Richard Nixon.

Now, that’s a real slap in the face.

5) “Where did you get those clothes? A toilet store?” – Brick Tamland from Anchorman.

This is especially good when someone tries to insult your impeccably good looks. You tell ‘em buddy.

4) “I can explain this to you, but I can’t comprehend this for you.” – NY Mayor Ed Koch

Well, I can’t do all of the thinking! Use this to combat ignorance, arrogance and downright obliviousness.

3) “I will take a drug test if you take an IQ test” – Senator Fritz Hollings

This is for when someone asks if you’re high (as in are you crazy) and you are not actually on drugs.

2) “I was gonna give you a nasty look, too bad you already have one.”

This is for those who are trying to give you the evil eye, but you honestly don’t care about them or the argument.

1) “Your mom’s chest hair” – Janis Ian from Mean Girls.

This is by far the best comeback ever. The end.
