A list of some of the best insults from a galaxy far, far away.

Everyone enjoys a good put-down or insult, unless you’re unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of course.

Sci-fi programmes such as Red Dwarf, Doctor Who and Blake’s Seven have given us plenty of material over the years.

Here is the Daily Dust’s Top 10 insults from the Sci-fi world:

10. “You were right. That must be a novel experience for you.” Avon, Blake’s Seven.

8. “I’m older and wiser.” “Yeah well, you’re half right.” Earl and Valentine, Tremors.

7. “He’s not as stupid as he looks.” “My dear, nobody could be as stupid as he looks.” The Countess and Count Scarlioni, Doctor Who.

6. “He’s like a turd that won’t flush.” Deacon, Waterworld.

5. “Hey, Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?” “No, have you?” Vasquez and Hudson, Aliens.

3. “Where’s the fire?” “That would be in my pants.” “That’s probably syphilis.” Rube, Mason and Daisy, Dead Like Me.
