The perfect comeback is a rare thing, at least in the moment. We can think of great ones while we’re in the shower or driving home, or even in those moments before we fall asleep, but deploying one in the moment?
These 25 people may never have that moment again, but they’ll always have that one, beautiful memory of the time their comeback landed hard and fast.
25. It’s the second part that really puts it over the top.
I love it with all of my heart and soul.
24. It’s funny because it’s true.
And you can watch most of it online. Those Floridians do love taping their antics.
23. Neither of them is over 18.
When you know, you know. And these two know…. something.
22. I mean…we don’t know how it happened, but here we are.
Be thankful that your dumb hasn’t rubbed off on him. Seriously.
21. I think that’s a fair bet.
Anyone care to argue? No? I thought not.
20. Ooooooh why though?
You have to just laugh that one off. But you didn’t kind of ask for it, didn’t ya?
19. This joke practically wrote itself.
Beautiful when that happens.
18. I mean…that’s funny.
If you’re anyone but the OP, I guess.
17. How many languages do you speak?
Because you don’t even speak one very well.
16. We all have to live with our choices.
Some are more long-lasting than others.
15. Oooh dang.
I would die if I found this.
14. What else is there to say, really?
They won’t listen to reason.
13. Where’s the lie, though?
Hint: You can’t find it.
12. Seriously don’t be that person.
Unless you don’t like having friends.
11. No one blames this kid.
I cannot believe that’s where her mind went. Wowwww.
I’m not sure that was technically deserved (but it’s funny!).
9. That is what’s known as a burn, my friends.
And it’s a hotttt one.
8. When the most brutal person you know is 4.
This girl is going places. Not sure where, but she definitely is.
7. Kind of walked right into that one.
You can hardly blame the commenter.
6. I’m sure this wasn’t the only choice response.
He deserves every last one of them.
5. I mean, he did ask for it.
And that first person DELIVERED.
4. The truth of it hurts.
Why are people like this?
3. He thought he was safe for a minute.
Never saw it coming.
2. This is a forever mood.
Jim Carrey is a king.
1. It’s probably wrong to laugh.
It’s just so spot-on, though.
I can only dream of having this moment for myself one day, y’all.
