Best Insults In 'Hamilton'

The founding fathers had some great insults in the Broadway musical.

The Broadway show "Hamilton" has been talked about non-stop recently, and its success is very well-deserved. If you have seen the musical or have listened to the cast recording, you know that the insults the characters would make Alexander Hamilton himself proud. While I am not promoting the use of these insults at other humans, I have compiled a list of some of the best insults from the musical "Hamilton."

1. “My dog speaks more eloquently than thee.”

During “Farmer Refuted,” Hamilton burns Samuel Seabury, a loyalist, with this line.

2. “Honestly, you shouldn’t even talk.”

Hamilton also fires this insult at Seabury in “Farmer Refuted,” and I think everyone can relate to a situation where they wanted to tell someone this.

3. “Obnoxious, arrogant, loudmouth bother.”

In “A Winter’s Ball,” I don’t think Aaron Burr could possibly fit anymore adjectives in this phrase describing Alexander Hamilton.

4. “Awesome. Wow.”

Dripping with sarcasm, King George’s line in “What Comes Next?” sounds like anyone would sound while faking happiness for someone.

5. “Thomas. That was a real nice declaration. Welcome to the present. We’re running a real nation.”

Hamilton serves Thomas Jefferson a reality check in “Cabinet Battle #1,” while still making a Thomas Jefferson/Declaration of Independence joke.

6. “And another thing, Mr. Age of Enlightenment.”

Also in “Cabinet Battle #1,” Hamilton also throws this jab at Thomas Jefferson.

7. “Damn, you’re in worst shape than the national debt is in.”

This is my favorite line that Hamilton insults Jefferson with during “Cabinet Battle #1,” and perhaps my favorite insult in the whole show.

8. “Hey, turn around, bend over, I’ll show you where my shoe fits.”

Another great insult in "Cabinet Battle #1."

9. “I hope that you burn.”

Eliza's line in "Burn" embodies how most feel after getting his/her heart broken.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
