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)

Lilly Langtree
Apparantly the following exchange took place between her and Prince Edward

"I've spent enough on you to build a battleship,"

whereupon she tartly replied,

"And you've spent enough in me to float one"

Doesn't really make sense
unless you add that 'spending' used to be a euphemism for ejaculation.

No - that's a common colloquialism.
It's also (I think inadvertently) an excellent employment of "tartly".

No, it's fine, it works as it is, because, you know, some of us are actually breathing, thinking human beings who don't need things spelt out for us.
