ARMANDO Iannucci’s ruthless political comedy Veep is famous for its innovative insults and Season 3 is no exception.

Not for the faint-hearted, combative words flew faster than ever, and here we celebrate the meanest, most hilarious and most memorable insults from Season 3, released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 30, 2015.

Enjoy this fabulous selection of devastating and demoralising putdowns from Vice President Selina Meyer and her team.

“You let that unstable piece of human scaffolding into your house?”
-Selina to Mike, about Jonah

“Shit. Maddox must’ve sent him here to spy or something. Jonah Bond, double-oh fuck off.”

“If you say anything on-air about the Veep, I will break your legs so severely you will end up normal height.”
-Dan, to Jonah

“Gary what are you doing? You look like a newborn giraffe.”

“Hey Richard? No offense, but you’re a catastrophe.”

“His parents did IVF. They just put two tapeworms in a puddle of antifreeze. Nine months later Jonah was born.”

“I’m a baby-faced, know-nothing congressman from ‘Shit-Stain’ Nevada, who’s got the newly-dropped balls enough to think that I can run for President.”
-Ben, imitating Owen Pierce

“He looks like he just came out of the bathroom and then decided that he hadn’t finished yet.”
-Andrew Doyle, about Senator Maddox

“I remember when I first saw it, thinking to myself, “What a hideous hat”. It is like she stuck her head in a swan and it’s exploded.”
-Peter Mitchell, about Selina’s hat

“Fat people don’t even vote. They can’t even be bothered to get out of the house, you know? There’s no food in the voting booth.”

“Where do you get your news? From a guy on a horse?”
Amy, to Dan

Selina: “You see that tie?”
Gary: “Yeah.”
Selina: “It’s hideous.”
Gary: “Horrendous.”
Selina: “Suits him.”
Gary: “Yeah, it does.”

“Emily Lafuente, the journalist? She was a vicious bitch and a fucking drunk. But that’s sad news.”
-Selina on the shooting of a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist

“You know, sometimes I feel like there’s a nine year old boy inside of you just operating the levers -Mike, to Jonah

“What in the wide world of fuck do you think you’re wearing?”
Selina to her daughter who is wearing nearly the exact same dress as her at the campaign launch
