  • Animal names that sound insulting.

    Now that I have a baby in the house I need to use even cleaner language than when I was a kid. My wife won't even let me say "crap". So I've been using animal names instead. So far I've got:

    Sarcastic Fringehead
    Spiny lumpsucker
    Buck
    Carp
    Giant betta
    Dugong
    Crohn's, doing SCD

      You start the best threads, you fungus beetle!

      And Mr. A: You're a pink fairy armadillo. Just saying.

        Fantasy animal names would probably work pretty well.

          Don't forget tufted titmouse and gamecock.

              Grandpa used to say "I'll be a Son-of-a-Buck!"

                I wish a "Cottonheaded Ninnymuggins" was a real thing.

                  Now wait a minute the Tufted Titmouse is one of my favorite birds! He's such a dapper fellow. If you called someone that in my house it would be taken as a compliment!

                    Well now I've done it. I've insulted a lover of titmice or titmouses or titmeese perhaps?

                          This is one of my favorites, and I wish I could say I only use it around the holidays.

                          Other good names:
                          Tawny Frogmouth
                          Virginia creeper
                          Screaming hairy armadillo
                          Cheeseweed

                          Aaahhh, nature.

                            Oh but it IS real. One of the most venomous snakes ever, in Australia.
