My favorite Churchill insult:

If I were married to you, I'd put poison in your coffee.

- - - Lady Astor (to Winston Churchill)

If you were my wife, I'd drink it.

- - - Winston Churchill, in reply

And another "celebrity insult" I found while researching the first:

You will either die on the gallows or of a loathsome disease.

- - - John Montague (to John Wilkes)

That depends on whether I embrace your principles or your mistress.

- - - John Wilkes, in reply
