There’s an art to a great burn – it has to be timely, appropriate level for the prior tweet, and to be accessible by a large amount of people.
If you get it wrong, no one will laugh (or they’ll think you’re mean). If you get it right, you’ll be a legend – just like these 12 people did recently on Twitter.
12. That is not an accident.
Backing into the mailbox is an accident.

9. The burn just keeps going.
And improving as it builds.
Hi there. It woukd take a team of 300,000 engineers working for nearly 10 years to design a vehicle to plumb the crushing depths of my disappointment in you right now.

8. That is quite an easy solution.
Also, people who tag artists in insulting tweets/reviews are just the absolute worst and deserve what they get.
Worse must be realising you’re too thick to change the station. https://t.co/p0iN8E7zww

7. Key word is “used” to.
We can all do something really stupid once.
I used to have a dog that wasn’t afraid of traffic.

6. I mean it also means it’s time to get out of the water.
Because grip or no grip, the water is still getting cold.
Good to know…I just thought it meant it was time to get out the bathtub https://t.co/AQiZIBUBEj

5. That’s the sort of thing that really sticks with you.
Middle schoolers are absolutely evil.

2. That is exactly the sort of lame burn I would expect from Nickelback.
That’ll do, Nickelback. That’ll do.
@mybueno we blame you. Not sure for what, but it was definitely you.

1. This is so wrong I can’t look away.
Why have some people been raised by animals?
Stay right where you are I'm calling the police https://t.co/mfpd2uQiBm
