The Arabian Insult Generator
October 22, 2003 11:37 PM   Subscribe

May 411 quasi-evil Karls dirty dance with Pez dispensers after applying Preparation H to your withered mailman: The Arabian Insult Generator. Though no match for the immortal "May you have an interesting life" (is it Chinese or Jewish?), here is a worthy self-generating collection of curses. (Click "Refresh" for a new batch..)

I have always thought it was Chinese, but I may be wrong and the wording is "may you live in interesting times".

May a dozen schizophrenic dingos bend over Popples using only vaseline and your bewildered excrement. Ewww!

(Bom dia, Lisbon.)

Sounds (to me, anyway) like more of something Apu would say than Arabian insults. It probably works like the Web Economy Bullshit Generator (a dot-com era classic).

All that said, a good find, Miguel. (And goodnight from San Francisco.)

dare i bring to your attention the really bad slash sex scene generator,
which, as these things go, is really really bad at generating anything remotely
like, oh say, a bad slash sex scene, for example:

"Most people believe that a rude paddle reaches an understanding with the couch,
but they need to remember how underhandedly the grand piano trembles."

Miguel, Thou peevish common-kissing malt-worm, I prefer the the Elizabethan Curse Generator. Though the Space Insult Generator is good too, you three eyed hologram of a clockwork space weevil.

Irish Curse Generator gives the Irish version and the phonetic pronunciation of each curse.
Go gcreime na gráinneoga cealgrúnacha do chuid fo-éadaigh...or....May malevolent hedgehogs gnaw at your underwear.

May an organized team of blackhawk helicopters swoop down on your sprawling suburban landscape and drop death squads amongst your midst, killing you and yours indiscriminantly, infidel.

May all your bowel movements come with tears and occur under the supervision of armed freedom fighters.

Oh, I thought it was an insult generator for the artful Arab. May many a bulldozer crush the life from my body in a concentrated effort not to see me ;)

May a herd of lice infested Regis Philbins poop out some wicked peanut butter after having a "bad experience" with your legs.

I surrender.

When I read that I was certain this post was about Aesop Rock.

"May you have an interesting life" (is it Chinese or Jewish?)

The 'curse' about interesting times comes from Robert F. Kennedy in 1966, and apparently first appeared in a 1950 science fiction story called U-Turn, according to the man who's obsessed with it.
