If you still have an appetite for put downs then we’ve collected 25 of the best – warning, non-swearsome.

What’s the fastest gag off the bat in all literature? My money goes on the first line of English Renaissance dramatist Ben Jonson’s classic comedy Volpone:
VOLPONE: Good morning to the day; and next, my gold!

Can anyone beat that? It has to be either faster or funnier.
