Should I be flattered when my own brand of self-deprecating humour is used against me? Or should I be flattered that someone who hates me with an infuriating passion is setting aside precious seconds of his life to make up insults I already use on myself? Referential Chinese railroad building? Been there, done that. Trash? Now that's a new one. I've been called "insane" "crazy" "bitch", but never "trash". And while it's not that offensive, I'm more irritated that it's as witless and unoriginal as the guy who said it (behind my back).

Reminds me of the verbal tussle between Rudy and Russell of Fat Albert fame:

"You're like school on Thanksgiving."

"School on Thanksgiving?"

"No class, turkey!"
