You blistering son of a rabid tush

10 year old boy coming up with insults without swearing.  Base words:  dazed, rabid, tush, buttocks, son of a, infest, infect, blistering.  First one that came up, blistering son of a rabid tush.

He's looking for a variety or words that could be put together in promising ways so he can invent creative ways of insulting folks when the need arises.  Without swearing.

A good way to pass a summer evening, no?

My own language could use some cleaning up. Blistering son of rabid tush - maybe I'm going to start using that one.

It's actually very promising, I think :)

I should post the list he made. I think I want a copy myself.

ElP, yup, points for creativity, no?

Blistering son of a rabbit tush ! my comment didn't show up here! I said last night how my mother used to say - damn to hell spit burst and stomach! Rot your ruddy guts!!
I found that very exciting and she put great oomph into it! K xx
Must have forgotten to press save - and now am a little drunk to write this! Sorry . Went for tapas in granollers and too many wines. xxx

You write lovely comments when you're a little drunk! Think I adore your mum too.

More evidence that traditional 4-letter words indicate a limited vocabulary! Please put me down for the list when it's ready. I could use an upgrade from the traditional Anglo-Saxon.
