They say if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. We say, if you don’t have anything nice to say, sit next to us! We can’t help but admire how effortlessly these razor-tongued characters can drop a cleverly-crafted jab. Sucks to be one of the people on the receiving end!
So, which quick-witted character has the best quips? Sound off below!
