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!

It is a noun as well as an adjective. Failure! Have you heard the new single by...

it's not a noun in the context it's being used.

Did anyone notice that the response described stupid as an adjective but used a noun definition? Yeah no Nobel Laureates here.

Did you notice that he was mocking Jamie? Not that I'm an expert, but that may have been why he used a noun definition. Don't kid yourelf, you're not getting a Nobel either.

It's an adjective. To even say you are single you are still describing yourself. If I said you are yellow or you are blue does blue or yellow become the subject ? No, it doesn't YOU is still the subject and blue is the adjective. Yes it can be used as both a noun and an adjective but in this case this chick was stupid

NatalieBlonde

A noun is a person place or thing. I am still in school so I would know, and a man is a noun so yeah.. And an adjective is describing a word, single man. Single is the adjective , and a man is a noun so it's BOTH a noun and an adjective, gets your facts straight people.

It's classified as a noun is several different contexts. That dude is just a misogynistic prick.

So.... just why was Caleb so upset about her comment when its true? Guys who think women only belong in the kitchen are truly horrible men and deserve to be single. If he's THAT upset about it then it just shows that he too is one of those who think women belong in the kitchen. If he didn't, then he wouldn't have taken it so personal. But he did, and just showed himself to be a misogynist asshat.

In your own sentence you're describing a man as single which makes single an adjective.
