Non-Verbal Insults

Because sometimes your best or only option may need to be a little passive-aggressive...

Depending on the situation, you may wish to go with a time honored attack - the fake dog poop approach. Leave some on their front porch, leave some on their office chair... the possibilities are endless. Relish their horror in silence from afar. To step up your game, you can also add a little fart spray to the mix. Want to be classy in your secret poop attack? Then why not go with some fake poop in a gift box?

If you feel fake poop might not quite send a harsh enough message, then there's always the more direct middle finger gesture trinkets, like this middle finger gnome, hand statue, or mug - which can be tastefully left full of coffee on a certain someone's desk, where it can slowly reveal its true nature to the drinker. Just remember - there's plenty of non-verbal ways to be insulting, you just have to get a little creative sometimes!
