A Book of Insult (Book Blocks)
by Edited by Nick Webb

Insults directed at somebody else have always given pleasure. From Martial to masters of the modern put down, the best insults have been carefully garnered for inclusion in this book. Some are chilling in their icy disdain whilst others are so politically incorrect as require a health warning.

A Book of Insult Summary


Here lie I, Martin Elginbrodde; Have mercy on my soul, Lord God, As I would do; If I were God; And ye were Martin Elginbrodde; is one of the most famous of all epitaphs and comes from Edinburgh. This book contains many others, some pompous, some sad, some downright funny and some ambiguous such as this gravestone in Liverpool which declares "Here Iyeth Sarah Young who went to sleep with Christ 6th January 1741" or that of her namesake the Mormon leader and polygamist, Brigham Young, whose gravestone reads "Brigham Young. Born on this spot 1801. A man of much courage and equipment".
