It occurred to me that I was slightly hijacking Patters' thread. I apologise for that, as he made good points about the nature of insults and the effectiveness in political debate. Anyway, I think we need a "you lot are all redneck b*stards, who speak funny and eat stupid food thread". So, there you go. I declare insult war on the United States of America, on behalf of an overprivileged old bat who speaks posh and wears a crown.
