The internet is pretty much just a place where we go to fight with each other in new and innovative ways.
Luckily, some of those ways are actually funny, and some fighters use their knowledge and wits to make the battle as sophisticated and satisfying as it is brutal.
Such is the way with these particular entries. Players – start!
14. If you don’t like it, leave
It’s fun to pair your heartlessness with insults so everybody knows right away you don’t actually care what happens to anybody who isn’t you.
Hey Tomi, Washington Post shithole bureau chief here. Love your foreign affairs reporting. Did you know there are 8.7 million Americans living overseas? Can’t imagine why they would leave home. https://t.co/Vazd6Ts3Pe

13. Over the moon
What I love about this reply is the the original tweet is gone now and it doesn’t even matter because it’s a one-size-fits-all rebuttal.

11. The gold standard
An absolute classic, the metaphor we all need.
10. Under pressure
The thing about gay marriage is that “believing in it” is irrelevant.
It’s just a thing that happens.
It’s not the Loch Ness Monster.
9. Soup’s on
Ok but how though?
8. The they
Seriously, everyone I grew up with used “they” as a gender-neutral singular all the time and didn’t have a problem with it until people started asking them to.
7. Absolutely smoked
You walked right into that one.
6. This is relevant
English is just a stew.
5. Under control
We get it, you’re vaped.
4. Would love to come
It’s five bucks dude, that’s like one beer.
3. Densely speaking
Shine bright like a diamond.
2. Soup strikes back!
No idea if this response is real but I want it to be.
1. Just a little bit
Let’s get way down deep.
Well I need to go fan myself off after all that heat.
What’s the best comeback you’ve heard recently?
