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!

Do not mind the angry jalous ones. You're a very good actor. your interpretation in Criminal Minds for example was perfect.
