the translators do like their alliteration, and "Ration my rum!" sounds good...

Harrock n roll
hard scraping induces blisters on the hands...

Yes, but still this GRIANCRIS is peculiar as it is written in capital and bold letters, unlike any other one in the corpus...

As it is transmitted via an unseen transmission system (parrots) in a story with spatiotemporal faults* and Indians (extinct natives), it might be the unseen or obscure passage found every time there is such a constellation...

* another one soon on the 'Eagle's cross discovery' thread; thanks for your collaboration...

My favorite Haddock insult is "ICONOCLASTS!"

My fave is definitely from "Coke en stock"---"Schizophrène!!!"

I think me favorite insults are ectoplasm, iconoclast, ostrogoth and of course we can't forget "Blistering barnacles!" and "Thundering typhoons!"

It has to be 'klaptomaniac' (someone who can't stop stealing), but that is because it's a private joke. We had a Australian supply teacher with a Hitler moustache called Mr. McGrar. He spent the first 10 minutes of the lesson telling us the origins of his name. Then, at the end of a lesson, someone picked an inflatable globe off the floor. The teacher then accused him of being a klaptomaniac and spent all of break telling a story about a klaptomaniac he once knew!!!

Definitly, "Politician" a true insult. :-D Or wait, Carpet Salesman!! Haddock is so awesome! Do you have an archive of all of the insults ever? That would be so cool! :-o

I'd have to say my favorite is "Purple profiteering jellyfish"... There's just a ring to it...

I;m fond of the dialogue when the C.D. plated car tears past Tintin and Haddock in Calculus Affair and flicks the cigarette out the window, leading Haddock to say "Certified Diplodocus, that's what you are."

Comes right after the 'nine pins' curse, which has to be up there too.
