Never Throw Stones at Your Mother by David Ross

Product Description from

The Irish may be the champions of the insult-few nations could assemble such an extensive lexicon of lethal weapons or make a mother cry by telling her that she’s no more use than a chocolate teapot. From the earliest days of Irish history when mighty warriors cringed before the satirical bard, the art of insult has played an important role in the country’s culture. In this glowing collection, outlandishly creative insults are paired with Irish stock favorites. Sections on sports, schools and scholars, politicians, actors, authors, lawyers, men, women, and family life are punctuated with the burning writings of the “Great Insulters”-Jonathan Swift, Oscar Wilde, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, George Bernard Shaw, and Oliver St. John Gogarty.
