BBC's Top 25 TV Put-Downs

The BBC has compiled its list of the Top 25 TV Put-Downs, including classic insults by Lord Blackadder and Carla from Cheers. For example:

Edmund Blackadder - Blackadder II. To Lord Percy: "The eyes are open, the mouth moves, but Mr Brain has long since departed, hasn't he, Percy?"

Carla - Cheers. Cliff: "I'm ashamed God made me a man." Carla: "I don't think God's doing a lot of bragging about it either."

Statler and Waldorf - The Muppet Show. Statler: "Wake up, you old fool, you slept through the show." Waldorf: "Who's a fool? You watched it."

Arnold Rimmer - Red Dwarf. "Look, we all have something to bring to this discussion. But I think from now on the thing you should bring is silence."

The British really are angry, spiteful people, aren't they. That's the thing that surprised me the most when I spent a lot of time with vacationing Brits, they are highly judgmental and don't have the ettiquette to keep it to themselves.

How is "Feck! Arse! Girls! Drink!" a put-down?
Apart from being completely awesome, I don't think anyone would be hurt too much by that.
And there were hundreds of way better ones from Life of Mars, but they were probably too politically incorrect or something. GENE HUNT FOR PRIME MINISTER ^_^
