The best put-down in the world....

My boss on his boss, last night.

"Oh, he just gets on my nerves so bloody much. The only thing I want to say to him before I die is: 'Two fries and a coke, please'."

Ouch.

That's nice. I'm going to steal that and pass it off as my own.

Harsh words. I've been trying to think of a worse insult but I can't. That is classic.

Quality.

Sometimes I feel exactly the same way about my boss!

No doubt it would be the last thing they'd say - I have no doubt as to the bitter deadly contents of the requested burger.

Laura- you didn't serve the fries though did you? You were in charge of those people, because of your natural organisational and managerial genius...

Of course I served fries. How do you think I got my trophy for best counter service 2000?!

Reminds me of a CD I have of fairly early Billy Connelly standup. When someone heckles him, he replies hautily: "Don't tell me how to do my job! Do I come down to your work and tell you how to sweep up?"

Reading Guido Fawke's blog the other day saw another beautiful put down which one day will be taken down, dusted off and passed off to show my own flair and wit

(Guido ringing Guardian offices to give a tip-off)

ring, ring... ring, ring...

Guido : Tom Happold please.
Guardian intern posh product of media studies course : He won't be back until Monday.
Guido : It's Guido, can you tell him Mick Fealty has just emailed me and I've seen the article and there is a lot more to this than has come out if he wants it for the print edition.
Gippomsc : The Guido Fawkes?
Guido : Yes.
Gippomsc : Why don't you post your reply on the website?
Guido : Why don't you come round and cut my grass for free?
