Antonin Scalia didn’t mince words in his dissenting opinion on Friday’s Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. The conservative justice called his colleague Anthony Kennedy’s opinion for the majority “as pretentious as its content is egotistic,” adding that it diminished “this Court’s reputation for clear thinking and sober analysis.” Over the last three decades, he has peppered his dissents (for the most part) with put-downs of his colleagues, plaintiffs, or whatever it was he was angry about on the day of writing. And now, with Mother Jones‘ handy Scalia Insult Generator, you can create your own!

Give it a try:


All insults are derived from actual Antonin Scalia quotes, except for “Your mom.” Your mom is fake. Wait, no, I didn’t mean it like that. I’m sure she’s lovely.
