* UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill sadly never said of UsefulNotes/ClementAttlee: "An empty taxi pulled up and the Prime Minister got out", as he thought very highly of Attlee, but Churchill was the source of many other flowery insults.

* Vice President Spiro Agnew was often a master of this, calling his opponents things like "an effete corps of impudent snobs", and "hopeless, hysterical, hypochondriacs of history".history", and most famously "nattering nabobs of negativism." Interestingly, though Agnew did tend towards the flowery in his insults, the ones everyone remembers were really the product of his speechwriter, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Safire William Safire]], who was later hired by ''The New York Times'' to provide conservative commentary on weekdays and the snarky GrammarNazi column "On Language" on Sundays.

''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' Brings us this in the form of the eponymous "Uncle Simon". He is an aging uncle being cared for by his young niece Barbra. Over the course of the episode, he calls her many things including a "Bovine Crab" a "Peanut-Headed sample of nature's carelessness" and an "Ugly Harpie." Some of these insults are delivered posthumously by the [[HiddenDepths robot he created]] to act as his replica and effectively trap Barbra into caring for someone just like him for the rest of her life. If she does not take care of the robot she loses every penny of her inheritance.
