Lisa McGee is a successful stage and screenwriter with a pretty impressive resume. If you live outside of the UK, you might not be as familiar with her work, but suffice it to say she’s done well for herself. Still, she couldn’t help but reflect on one the biggest insults to her abilities that she’d ever heard…

It’s a pretty harrowing tale of burnination, but it’s the initial prompt that’s going to be the real story here. “What’s the best sly dig you’ve ever received?” it turns out, Twitter had no shortage of these digs, and were more than eager to share them. Here are just a dozen of the best/worst entries.

12. Piling on

Damn lady, what did she ever do to you?

11. Easy does it

Thank you? I guess?

10. Man, oh man

In what way is this a compliment?

9. You made the team

She’s lying anyway, dude.

8. Let them eat cake

I guess maybe you can cut it in this industry.

7. Documented cruelty

If it ain’t got a script, it ain’t legit.

6. Approach with caution

Smooth as butter.

5. If memory serves

The student has become the burner.

4. Supremely confident

Why shouldn’t I be, DAVE?

3. It’s all in the eyes

Face it: this is terrible.

2. Stretching the truth

You play with fire, expect to get burned.

1. On the other hand

Your dad sounds like the worst financial planner ever.

Welp. That’s a lot of digs. I’m going to need some time to recover from all that. Be nice to each other out there; words stick around for a loooooong time.
