Top 5 Veep insults? (sorry, you're gonna be here for years now)
Ooooh… this is hard.
For all Veep is famous for its profanity, I think quite often the ones that really stick with me are cutting in a different way. So:
1. “You are the worst thing to happen to this country since food in buckets, and maybe slavery.”
2. “You’re not even your Mom’s favourite Jonah, Jonah.”
3. “Jolly green jizzface.”
4. The Cloud Botherer
5. “You epileptic Picasso painting.”
And I’ll just throw in a compliment to the Thick of It, which was has one of the most devastating insults I’ve ever hear. Ben Swain, a junior minister, is doing an interview with Jeremy Paxman and his “giant horseface of mock incredulity.” The interview is not going well, to put it mildly, and Jamie, the press officer attending him, simply says on the phone… “The cameramen are laughing.”
(As much as Malcolm Tucker is the central character of the Thick of It, Jamie gets some fabulous, fabulous lines).
