1. haaa!! Funny!!
I didn't get the nomenclature at first-- fulldeckisms??.....

HAAAAA!!
I like "41.A natural talent for finding subliminal messages in ice cubes."

Next, how about Snaps? Is there an encyclopedia of them? You know, those, "Your momma's so fat......".

Only let's not be sexist and limit it to only mom's problems. All immediate family are welcome benchmarks. :P

4. I've been using that list for many years.. Very handy when you get in a flamewar..
People use and reuse all the tired old insults, it's much more entertaining to insult someone in an inventive and fresh manner.
