Comebacks are a rare and fleeting thing, as most of us will only think of the perfect retort to someone hours after they've actually insulted us. Social media, however, has given us the unprecedented opportunity to send our comebacks to the right place at the right time and wipe those stupid smirks off of our enemies' faces!

It turns out, there's a perfectly savage burn for any given situation - whether it be your pupils trying to diss you at a class reunion, somebody questioning your education, and, of course, people trying to mock or brag about theirs or your love life. And if you ever fall short on comeback ideas, you can always circle back to this great collection and just pick one!

If you've ever seen a perfect comeback captured on social media, please add it to our list – and vote for your favorites as well!

I kind of don’t like the spaghetti dude because a lot of women have authority over men and it says she must be quiet. The fact that it says ‘she must be quiet’ defines who I am.

It isn’t sexist because man has authority over a woman in general, mostly guys that teaches in the churches or any types of classes are men not a woman

Non-evangelical New Testament scholars generally believe that all three pastoral epistles (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus) were written by an unknown person in Paul’s name long after he was dead. While this unknown author admired Paul and wanted to use his authority, he also contradicted Paul. In such cases, if anyone is to be able to speak to the church today with authority, it is the “true Paul,” not the “pseudo-Paul” of the pastoral epistles. And the “true Paul” taught that in Christ there is neither male nor female (Galatians 3:28). https://bible.org/seriespage/9-what-does-it-mean-not-teach-or-have-authority-over-men-1-timothy-211-15 Just sayin'

It makes more sense than to say everything came from nothing. God, or even the idea of God, to be an alien isn't even a realistic statement.

Also when Paul says I say this or I don't permit this; means it is an opinion an not the teachings of Christ Jesus
