One Obstacle when it comes to writing dialogue: trying to come up with insults that don't devolve into swearing.

...and we appreciate your struggle!

Realistically, a lot of people will just start cussing. They're not fictional characters trying to hold one's interest, they're not trying to avoid alienating readers who - for whatever reason - just don't "do" profanity. While I lean more towards the latter, I'm also the kind of geek with an overactive imagination who visuals what is being said...

...your insult is entertaining. Most bouts of swearing make the user look silly in when you think about them literally. XP
