This is a question Devastating Put-Downs

Amorous Badger says: I once saw a former manager of mine being asked to 'sit down and let your mouth have a chance to speak' by his senior. What's the best heckle/putdown/riposte you've ever seen? (Hint: Recycled 'Your mum' jokes does not make an answer)

The mastery of timing and a quick mind
The genius who came out with the following retort will go down in my memory for ever and ever.
It was a quiet saturday lunchtime in my local boozer about 10 years ago.
our landlord was a genuine good laugh who could handle the piss takes as well as dish them out. Thing was, he had a slight disadvantage in that he weighed the best part of 30 stone. Anyways up, our small group of about 5 of us are stood at the bar talking footy etc when in walks a complete stranger. You know how it is when that happens in a local, the place falls silent ( see slaughtered lamb in american warewolf). The said stranger is wearing the loudest knitted jumper you have ever seen and our landlord seeing a gilt edged opportunity jumps in head first
" Hello mate , i like your jumper" ( looks at us for approval).
Stranger , without hesitation replies.
" You probably would, it's a medium"
Cue 5 human beer fountains.

I don't understand
OK, so the landlord was fat, but why would he like the jumper because it was a medium sized one? Or is this some spiritualist reference?

Glad I'm not the only one not to get this.
The only thing that came to mind was that the landlord would have loved to be able to fit into a medium-sized jumper rather than the XXXL variety he usually wore, but it seems a bit convoluted.

Tenuous, but that's probably it.
Besides which, is insulting new customers really a good business strategy?

I think that is comedy gold.
Well played knitted-jumper wearer.
