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)

Total crap
My A-level music teacher was a thoroughly unpleasant man, but very, very funny. It was his first job teaching in a school after years of running a few youth orchestras and a big Saturday morning music school, and one of the things he just couldn't get his head around was the amount of admin work he was expected to do as a school teacher. Like all teachers he hated doing it, but unlike the rest of them he pretty much refused to do it at all. Getting him to take a register at the beginning of each lesson, or file end of term reports, was the bane of his head of department's existence.

On this occasion, she’d managed to get him to do the reports, but they weren’t to her satisfaction. One of them in particular fell well short of what might be considered acceptable. There was one boy who’d barely turned up to any lessons, hardly turned in any homework, and was heading towards failing his exams. His report for the term consisted of a single word:


“This is unacceptable!” the boss railed. “You can’t just be randomly abusive like that without any explanation - we need constructive criticism. You need to go into more detail.” So he amended the report. It now read:

Total crap.
