Some people are simply good when it comes to coming up with perfect comebacks that leave their opponent speechless and win the debate big style. A good comeback requires a sharp and quick mind and equally importantly – wit. You might think that it’s not easy to fulfill all these criteria, however, we’ve not even mentioned the key ingredient of a perfect comeback: imagination.
That’s right, all it takes is a bit of creativity to make teach your smug opponent a lesson they won’t soon forget. We firmly believe that a perfect comeback is, in most cases, a product of a momentary inspiration.
As we all know, nowadays, social media are a true battlefield, with people exchanging their opinions over social networks and engaging in heated debates with other people online and the debates often get personal. A good comeback is a game-changer, as they let you turn the tables on your opponent and wipe that smirk off their face in a matter of seconds! These people have done just that.
We present you with the list of some of the most savage comebacks ever to be posted on social media.
1. The biggest joke I ever made
Now, that was just savage. You wouldn’t want to mess with this mom.
Don’t try to get smart with your teacher online because there’s a good chance you’ll get out of it burned – and embarassed. Mrs. Johanson sure knows how to handle her former students.
3. Big Z
We imagine Nick didn’t feel so enthusiastic about sharing that kind of information on Facebook after this comeback. Sometimes social media gives us a bit too much freedom.
4. Gay ads
Google knows everything about you and if you didn’t know that before, now is probably the time to catch up. You might also reconsider posting dumb things like this online. It might come back to bite you.
5. Back to reality
Here’s a clear example of how being a control freak can come back to haunt you. Not even girlfriends have the right to check their boyfriends phone.
Playing with semantics has its advantages, though it’s better you don’t share your findings on Facebook. If you want to avoid looking silly, that is.
7. Costly mistake
We all make mistakes, that’s just how life is. There’s no reason to go around repeating that simple fact.
8. Sayeth the Serpent
Posting random quotes from the Bible on Facebook may seem fancy to some, but at the end of the day, it won’t make you look any smarter. Just the opposite.
9. Hard to find
Here’s how you shut down someone in only two words. Saying more by saying less is definitively a form of art, don’t you agree?
10. Moms know best
Knowing how to behave around girls is important, as long as the girl is not your mom. We can bet this is neither the first nor the last time he got owned on social media.
11. American beauty
Ouch. This probably hurts. Ugly is just a word and love is much more than that.
12. We must all make sacrifices
We all get philosophical from time to time but most of us are no Plato or Aristotle. Nothing can be more sobering than when you get owned by a random person on Facebook!
13. Geography 101
Globes are so awesome, right? Did you know Austria and Australia are actually two separate countries! You learn something new every day.
14. The little things in life
What would you do if you got completely and utterly owned, not once, but twice? Well, Roger was pretty cool about it, whereas most other people would probably not be so classy. Kudos to Roger!
15. Done and dusted
That’s some way to rub salt into this guy’s festering wound. He has no one to blame but himself. He asked for it.
16. Weekends never have to end
Don’t worry Emily. You might get it… one day.
17. Aldi strikes back
If you think you’re going to end up working in Aldi, don’t announce it. If you do you might get disappointed.
18. David and Shann
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new Olympic Champion in getting owned online. That must sting!
19. Memories, sweet memories
Isn’t it pretty amazing? A pizza that comes in 20 seconds. We thought we’ve seen it all before but this is a new one.
20. Simple truths
The biggest truths are often the most obvious ones. The problem is, people are generally unwilling to say them out loud, except for this guy!
21. Breakups are hard
Talking to your ex can easily become an awkward, as well as an unpleasant experience. Sometimes, just sometimes, you get to release your bottled emotions and tell them how you really feel. This sure didn’t make Caroline happy!
22. Broken things
Here you are, trying to share your wisdom on Facebook and then you suddenly realize your mom is having none of it! If you mom has Facebook, you better watch out!
23. Call me dad
If you thought that commas aren’t important, now is the time to reconsider. Here’s a perfect example of how one little comma can make all the difference.
24. What do you have that I don’t?
Boys will be boys. A simple, yet powerful comeback that just screams: ‘Don’t get on Nicolas’ bad side.’
25. Time flies
Time is relative. If you don’t trust us, read Einstein. We’re pretty sure that Mary’s mom can attest to this simple fact.
26. Old Spice
There’s a thing called fire safety and we’re pretty sure everyone must adher to it. This is what happens when you want to be smart on Twitter. You get burned.
27. In Sun’s orbit
If they invested the time into doing something really creative instead of writing dumbass apocalyptic scenarios on Facebook, they wouldn’t get exposed in front of everyone. Perhaps people need to get burned to learn their lesson.
28. Nouns and adjectives
It’s best we don’t talk about grammar unless we’re absolutely sure that we’re correct. Furthermore, there’s nothing bad about being single.
29. Comma free world
We couldn’t agree more. People need to learn to use commas for a change.
30. The art of critique
Suddenly, everyone’s an acting critic. Folks go to school for that, you know. No wonder this guy got called out for his misguided criticism.
31. Thanks mom!
Here’s a rather rare example of people owning themselves. It must have took a lot of courage to post this.
32. Don’t drink bleach
Facebook is not the Wizard of Oz who knows the answers to all questions. Apparently, some people have a hard time understanding this simple fact.
33. A witty comeback
And it better be a good sandwitch too! She asked for a comeback, she got one!
It’s not cool to take credit for someone else’s superpower. This guy better find his own superpower, or risk all the cows of this world suing him for copyright infringement.
35. When reality hits you in the face
Even if he had a girlfriend, he would be single again after she saw this post. This way only his pride got hurt.
36. Spelling issues
That comeback was so savage we feel sorry for the guy. The internet doesn’t forgive and doesn’t forget.
37. Down with the rules!
When you get the wrong idea about what girl power really means, it’s only logical that you end up getting roasted. Not a pleasant feeling, for sure!
38. Stripper 101
Claire got owned so thoroughly we feel that anything we might add at this point would come out as redumdant. Let’s hope she learned her lesson.
39. Blonde alert
This was a comeback that was never meant to be. Instead, it was Jake who got destroyed. Not the best of days for the malekind.
40. Don’t bite my head off!
James miscalculated here big time. No wonder he got destroyed and embarrasse. Next time he’ll probably think twice about comparing male members with lollipops.
