Banerian insults usually attacks someones higiene or intelligence and does so with metaphors and comparisons, often with funny results. Such descriptive and easy to get insults seems to come from the Banerian Chant in which the main purpose of an insult is to mock your opponent while making the audience laugh at their expense. Also, some others like "pars de roc benefica" seems to be references to popular chants, whose exact origin has been lost in time. Other insults, like most curses, seems to be more of a form to express anger than an insult intended to actually hurt someones feelings.

These are brilliant! My favourite one is : "Less trustwothy than a coin of wood " bahahaha

:D The standard is quite low when they'd rather accepts wood coins as payment than trusting your word

Creative collection of insults, but the formatting could use some more work. And for some reason the search bar is right over the headline for me...

Thanks ^^

Very creative! I suggest throwing your translation inside of and leaving the explanations as the plain text.

That could be useful, but only few of them have a proper explanation, most of them are pretty straighforward

These are certainly colorful! I like the rhythm of the words, they sound very organic and natural

Thank you, they are heavily inspired in roman languages, so i kinda got the rhythm. ^^
