Have you ever had some words you wanted to say to someone, but you couldn't say what you wanted to because of no-profanity rules in the office, or maybe you're at church, or in front of your kids?

A post on Reddit asked the simple question; "What is your favorite profanity-free insult?" The comments came flooding in, many duplicates of another, but regardless, they're pretty great.

Feel free to use any of these insults today, just know it's not on me if you get in trouble anyway.

  • "You couldn't pour water out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel."
  • "You're the reason we need lifeguards in the gene pool."
  • "As an outsider, what's your view on intelligence?"
  • "I hope the rest of your day is as pleasant as you are."
  • "You are impossible to underestimate."
  • "You're the reason shampoo has instructions."
  • "You have a face for radio." I don't understand how that's an insult.
  • "Bless your heart." The southern "F--- you."
  • "Everyone makes mistakes, but you're really abusing that privilege."
  • Multiple commenters said when driving, giving a thumbs down is worse than the middle finger. It makes sense, because we all brush off the bird, but getting a thumbs down is ultimate disapproval.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
