There's nothing better than a good put down.
When someone has pissed you off, oh the satisfaction of coming up with a witheringly clever sentence that stops the offender in their tracks and leaves them open mouthed as you glide off.
Most of us think of a suitably clever snub several hours after the opportunity to voice them has passed, and we're left kicking ourselves that we didn't think of it at the time.
Not so some of our celebrities, they seem to take the opportunity to cast aspersion on their fellow stars with alacrity. From President Obama to the late, great Joan Rivers, they've all given us a little snigger with an eloquent, bitchy aside.

The last words definitely have to go to legendary war time Prime Minister of England, Sir Winston Churchill who was master of the put down...
"Tell him I can only deal with one shit at a time" —on being disturbed in his toilet by a call from the Lord Privy Seal.
Lady Astor said to Churchill: "Winston, if you were my husband I would flavor your coffee with poison. To which he famously replied; "Madam, if I were your husband, I should drink it."
Fellow politician Bessie Braddock to Churchill: "Winston, you're drunk!"
His response? "Bessie, you're ugly, and tomorrow morning I shall be sober."
