When you want to insult some one but cannot use any swearwords/ cussing.

What do you say? Something general and impersonal to deal with the little jabs you get from friends or family or if there are kids around. My ex-girlfriend was deliberately trying to make me angry and she was succeeding. I wanted to call her stupid and disgusting but I also wanted to swear but my kids were present. After a bit of stammering I blurted out, "You close your lips you thick dump." She was insulted but was able to laugh about it which was good. I didn't want to really actually upset her but still make her scoff in shock from something I said. Do you have any insults that are made entirely of large words kids can't understand or ways of insulting people so that no one is too offended, but still offended?

I usually prefer irony and subtle insulting comments that seem acceptable to anyone present but I know that make the recipient very angry. I usually find a colorful way to exaggerate that person's "flaws" in a seemingly polite way. Ah, I can't really explain it, here's an example: I once said to a bald friend that he should use less wax because the shining blinds me. People thought I was talking about his car but he knew it was about his scalp. That's what I like doing!

True. I guess what I am asking is a little unreasonable. I want to insult the person but only to a degree. All I basically want is a good last word, nothing else. If I am not clever enough to whup up a context related zinger, I want a fall back or at least an outline of a fall back. -Thank you for your input =)
