If he's a sharp-tongued smartass, do a John Cleese and say, "Been reading some Oscar Wilde, have we?"

Inspired by Blarg's Cleese suggestion, howabout this if he says something putting you or yours down:

"I see. Well, of course, this is just the sort of blinkered philistine ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage. You sit there on your loathsome spotty behinds squeezing blackheads, not caring a tinker's cuss for the struggling artist. You excrement, you whining hypocritical toadies with your colour TV sets and your Tony Jacklin golf clubs and your bleeding masonic secret handshakes. You wouldn't let me join, would you, you blackballing bastards. Well I wouldn't become a Freemason if you went down on your stinking knees and begged me. "


Tell us his subject matter, we could come up with something better based on that, I reckon.

ahhh,

errr...

flash
cocky
snotty

that's about it. There's other phrases, but not easy to drop in accidentally, or are too generic to convey the specific meaning of arrogance:

prat used to be a noun used for someone both arrogant and stupid, but I think it's now become as a general insult (and not much used).

"Berk" is the same as prat (Berk is rhyming slang for 'Berkshire hunt'... you can work it out), as is [censored].


There's the expression "loves the sound of his own voice" and "He says what he likes, and likes what he bloody well says"

hmmm, I'm still pondering if there's more though...

You could try this:

You: "you remind me of a minge-eater."
Him: "What?"
You: "Sorry, just reminiscing. Used to know a woman who had the same personality and accent as you. She was from Calcutta, but raised in England, and talks just like you. Minge-eater she was called [ie Minjitta]. You just remind me of this particular minge-eater, that's all."

If he wears this, you could call him minge-eater from then on as a pet name?

ehhh, maybe lame, not sure.

EDIT: Alternatively, find out something about him and make double entendres that can be interpreted innocently, but make him sound gay/retarded/stupid if not interpreted innocently.

Eg, if he played rugby at school, you could say stuff like 'I bet you had great fun beating off all the other guys and scoring, huh?'

As long as you don't laugh or give away you're taking the piss, he could well be nonplussed by it and ignore it. You could have enourmous and ongoing fun with this approach. I'm sure OOT could come up with lots of suggestions if you can get some background about him and post it here.

(ps. If it's Richard Dawkins, you can STFU and live with it).

"soft-cock" is the best generic insult.

I've always had a deep love in my heart for the term, "fartless bastard."
