No, You

Describe No You here.

Your face is describing No You here!

The act of replying to an insult by simply saying "No, you!" or something similar, meaning that said insult applied more to the person giving it than the person receiving it.

Omnipresent in schools, especially middle to high schools.

Similar comebacks:
  • "I know you are, but what am I?"
  • "It takes one to know one!"
  • The childhood classic, "I'm rubber, you're glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you!"
  • "You are the one who is X!" and its variant, "It is you who is X!"
  • "Your Mom/Your face/Your ass is X!"
  • The "adult" equivalent: "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."

A common gag is for someone to make a Your Mom joke to their own sibling and get this response, only for them to both notice the irony a moment later. A slightly sharper sibling might just retort "she's your mom too!" in the first place.

Sometimes this is used as a Pre Ass Kicking One Liner. See also You! Exclamation, Lame Comeback, Big Stupid Doodoo Head, I Will Show You X, Argument of Contradictions and Verb This!.

    Comic Books

  • From the Futurama episode "War is the H Word" Zapp Brannigan is punishing Fry for cowardice in battle, so he asks Kif to name the most humiliating job possible. Kif, of course, replies "Being your assistant", to which Zapp immediately replies, "No, being your assistant!" Surprisingly for this trope, Zapp turns out to actually be onto something with that, as, while Kif isn't the amoral, imbecilic Man Child that Brannigan is, he does have a lot of pent-up anger and frustration, which he spends the rest of the episode unleashing on Fry.
