Gimme some nicknames. Dorks.
October 5, 2010 12:08 PM   Subscribe

My (male) friend and I tend to flippantly call each other insulting nicknames for fun, kinda as a Jr. High flirty thing. Started with "Brat," then "Loser," then "Dork," then Turd." I need to switch it up and would like to have a list of totally impressive alternatives to pull out of my back pocket to throw him off guard when he least expects it... I need to get more creative and clever.

Short is good. A range of benign to sharp is fine, this is all about variety. I try to pretend I'm a delicate classy lady once in a while so if you also give me a variety of G-PG-X rated ones to choose from that would be fantastic. He's a bartender and a big fan of punk music if that helps to inspire you.

Okay, shoot.

Oh, and he's originally from New York so if there's any good New York slang I don't know... that might totally shock him if I threw that out.

Anything vulgar plus "wad" is solid; phlegmwad, taintwad, GlennBeckwad.

Any vulgar plus "bucket" is solid; jerkbucket, assbucket, GlennBeckbucket, etc.

Mountebank!

Definitely use Putz.

I would reserve Dickless piece of shit for special occasions, but I have to include it because it's my favorite such insult.

Or how about: Fucknugget. It has a nice melodiously-insulting quality, I think.

My brother and I started doing this years ago and somehow it evolved into calling each other actual first names other than our own, but with an insulting tone.

"whatever, DAVE!"
"sure, LEONARD!"
"oh, is that what you think, STEVEN?"

That sort of thing. I think we're the only ones who think it's funny.

I also have a friend who uses "homophobe" as a standard, all-purpose derisive insult nickname for pretty much everyone in every situation.

WANG!

Wang is my favorite. It's childish and funny. Makes me laugh every time.

They're not exactly short, but I like to add professional titles at the beginning of my offensive nicknames. Here are some examples, with extra nicknames!

Captain Dickweed
Professor Cuntsworth
Major Fuckface
Doctor Fartbreath
Admiral Wangtooth
Private Poopbrain

Et cetera. Though, if he's from New York, I don't know why you aren't calling him #1 Mets Fan all the time!

1) Take any single-word insult and draw it out to a comical length, as if you're identifying something for someone else to see.

Dorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrk!

Douuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuche!

2) When attacked by another person, respond like a stadium crowd taunting an opposing player that has just made a bad play. Bonus points for pointing and chanting in a reaction that is a complete non-sequitur following his insult.

Him: "Dipshit."
You: "AAAAAAAAIR-BALL! AAAAAAAAIR-BALL! AAAAAAAAIR-BALL!"

Does he have an annoying co-worker or anyone in his life that you know of? Call him by their name, in just the right town, with a grin on your face.

When the other person is being what they think is particularly brilliant, it's good to laugh and say "You're so smart, um, *snapping fingers* yeah, don't tell me, I'll remember it...and then finally say someone else's name"

The whole "X McX" meme, while incredibly juvenile, does allow for a great deal of variability depending on the situation.

Examples:
"Retard McTardypants" - general idiocy
"Pissy McHissyfit" - overreaction

I think, overall, "turd" is my favorite. Calling someone a turd is so childish, how can they get mad at you? Also, it brings to mind the excellent Steve Martin short short history of Turdsmania, "Turds". A quote:

he Turds never became accepted in this country because of their name. The Turds, or people from Turdsmania, were people of healthy stock. They were tall, with long straight hair; the men robust, the women bold and beautiful. The first Turds arrived on these shores in fifteen eighty-nine, one year after the defeat of the Spanish Armada. They were unjustly blamed for the defeat of the Spanish Fleet when a Spanish admiral remarked, "No wonder we lost, we had a bunch of turds managing our cannons!"

If you're not down for the religious reaming, there's always the classic character names:
If he's just hanging around call him Chad.
If he, like, TOTALLY FLIPS OUT call him Jerry (Maguire).
If he trips or stumbles call him Grace.
If he fails miserably call him Ace.
And so on. Names have meanings. You can invariably fit his actions/words to a jokey name or character.

Also, seconding 'Doc' but you have to be gnawing on a carrot when you say it.

Hergé to the rescue:

From Captain Haddock's Expletives:

— the first appearance of the Haddockian argot occurred in a scene in The Crab with the Golden Claws where the Captain storms towards a party of Berber raiders yelling expressions like 'jellyfish', 'troglodyte' and 'ectoplasm'.

...

In addition to his many insults, the most famous of Haddock's expressions relate to any of a number of permutations of two phrases: "Billions of bilious blue blistering barnacles!" ("Mille millions de mille milliards de mille sabords!") and "Ten thousand thundering typhoons!" ("Tonnerre de Brest!"). Haddock uses these two expressions to such an extent that Abdullah actually addresses him as "Blistering Barnacles" ("Mille sabords" in the original version).


A word of caution, however:

Émile Brami, biographer of Louis-Ferdinand Céline, claimed in a 2004 interview with the French book magazine Lire that Hergé took his inspiration from Céline's antisemitic pamphlet Bagatelles pour un massacre (1937) to create some of Haddock's expressions, as some of them ("aztec," "coconut," "iconoclast," "platypus") appeared explicitly in Céline's book. In total, Captain Haddock has said at least 192 expressions, which are all listed in a book, the "Dictionary of Captain Haddock's Insults."

Yay to santaslittlehelper. I call people "son of a motherless goat" all the time. I think it's from Three Amigos.

In an episode of Six Feet Under, Nate yells "son of a motherFUCK" on the phone (about an overpriced casket, but that's not relevant). I say that too. It's become "son of a mother" when used in toe-stubbing expletive situations, not really name-calling.

I call my (female) best friend "bitchcakes" affectionately sometimes. That's from NewsRadio.

...and I swear I do have my own ideas that aren't from TV sometimes...

Many fighter pilot call signs are obscure insults, if you're in the mood for explaining the riddle.

Some of my favorite insulting nicknames:
Funhouse - cause his body looked like when you look at yourself in a funhouse mirror
Tackle Box - looked like his face got caught in a fishing tackle box
Four-Meal - ate so much three meals wasn't enough

Then there's the generic "shitty dick" but that one can come off as casting being gay as a pejorative if you do it wrong. Works best on flamboyant gay dudes who know you're ok with that.

Ages ago I made a formula for just such a purpose:


x+p+n+(a+b)+(a+b)+p+y+c+q

where

x is a username

p is ','

n is the pronoun 'you'

a is any of these insult prefixes: fuck-, ass-, shit-, republi-, douche-, micro-, dick-.

b is any of these insult suffixes, -fuck, -ass, -assed, -head, -headed, -can, -bag, -douche, -truck, -shit, -soft, -dick, -dicked.

y is the words 'why don't you'

c is one of the following: go hop up your own ass, pull your head out, sit on a lawnmower, poke yourself in the eye, go find inner peace on Free Republic, make like the wind and get bent, go cry about it to your mommy, strap yourself to the tail of a 747 and see where it takes you, die like the dog you are, fuck off and cry.

q is '?'

With this simple formula taped to your wall you should be able to construct such one-size-fits-all insults as:

Kattullus, you republidicked fuckfuck, why don't you die like the dog you are?

Kattullus, you microbag douchetruck, why don't you strap yourself to the tail of a 747 and see where it takes you?

I trust you can take it from there, dear MeFite, you dickassed asscan, why don't you go make like the wind and get bent?

[Warning: Side effects include: Merely typing someone elses username may lead you to spout invective uncontrollably, getting hit with a banhammer, being an insufferable ass, constructing sentences with double colons, losing your job and/or significant other because you spend all your time throwing insults at people who barely know you exist.]

The great and glorious idiopath made a javascript that can sit in your bookmark bar that spews out such insults automatically. You can find it on my profile page.
