I need to be insulted! But use your native tongue.

I'm looking for insults from around the world, in their native tongue, English translation and phonetics. Not truly offensive, but more like the Shakespearian "I bite my at thou." The stranger/smarter/culturally varied, the better.

I have scoured the web and unfortunately have only come across some truly vulgar suggestions. Do you have something? Have parents, grand parents etc who might have some ideas?
"May you live in interesting times" - The Chinese proverb is a great one as well.
"Noch a chochem!" - The Yiddish "Such A Scholar" is good to.
So anything you got...insult me!
