I love a good retort. Almost as much as the original torte.
Buzzfeed has come up with a list of 32 great comebacks.
Now, two points:
- As a reader at Neatorama points out, there are lots of these.
(PacRim Jim relates:
At a dinner party Churchill says to his dinner companion, "Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?"
The woman responds, "My goodness, Mr. Churchill. I suppose I would."
Churchill replies, "Would you sleep with me for five pounds?"
She answers, "Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?"
Churchill answers, "Madam, we've already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.")
- For the last 2 years, I have maintained a growing list of specialty blogs/user-contributed websites I'd like to build as experiments with something like Ruby on Rails. Suffice it to say that one of them has to do with this very subject.
