The legendary Murdered By Words community on Reddit is a place where like-minded individuals celebrate the savage art of the comeback. "Well-constructed put-downs, comebacks, and counter-arguments" from across the internet inevitably find their way to r/MurderedByWords where over 2.6 million members savor the finesse, wit, and good-old-fashioned common sense employed to deliver some epic burns. "The way we see it, a murder should (but doesn't always have to) be more than a quick response or retort," one of the moderators told Bored Panda. "The best murders are well-constructed, thought-out responses that leave the opening argument completely without any ability to reply. In other words, their point has been totally demolished."

"Now, obviously there's more than one way to murder with words, and sometimes a quick rapier thrust or stab to the heart (a short, swift reply) can be just as deadly as a drawn-out murder, and you'll frequently see both types in this sub," they added. "We manage the community by being a tight-knit group of moderators who are all carefully vetted before being given the position, to ensure the stability of the subreddit and that good content gets through."

Here are 25 of the most savage comebacks that have been featured on r/MurderedByWords:
