Literary/Historical burns

This is a little something new I’m going to start doing. These will never be full length posts, but hopefully these bookish insults that I throw mostly at the screen will amuse you as much as they did me.  I might even include some scorchers from books I’m reading! More coming soon! Also, feel free to share your own!

Character or person who persists in being annoyingly alive: such a Thenardier!

Complicated family problems: it’s like you’re the royal family of Denmark or something.

Character betrays someone who trusted them: BENEDICT ARNOLD

People start getting thrown out of windows: what is this, Prague? (see this post for explanation if needed)
