As insults go somewhat tame, I hear worse from the local toe rags chatting with their friends on their mobiles. Though I do like the liver eater insult.

They are a bit tame...the chicken one isnīt really much of an Insult, more of a metaphor.

"I sh*t on you" is a fairly good one I think. It's fairly abrupt and to the point; like a good insult should be.

We hear of such Estern European vampire graves sometimes.

In that case, "Poland" yes but it would be interesting to know what was the cultural background when these "vampires" were buried. Silesia was German.

If they continue to exhumate old kings, while the Royal family is still busy making new ones, they will have too many kings in the UK!? :D lol
