    Animal names that sound insulting.

    Shop Now
    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
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    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.

    Grandpa used to say "I'll be a Son-of-a-Buck!"
    Some people just need a sympathetic pat... On the head... With a hammer.

    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?
