I just saw this in an article on insults in the Express:
'When Rodney Marsh, the Australia wicketkeeper, asked Ian Botham who had come into bat: “How’s your wife and my kids?” Botham replied without missing a beat: “The wife’s fine but the kids are retarded.” I like to think that’s why he got his knighthood. If not, it certainly should be'. http://www.express.co.uk/comment/columnists/david-robson/332055/An-insult-needs-to-be-laced-with-wit __________________ 'Monarchy can easily be ‘debunked;' but watch the faces, mark the accents of the debunkers. These are the men whose tap-root in Eden has been cut: whom no rumour of the polyphony, the dance, can reach - men to whom pebbles laid in a row are more beautiful than an arch. Yet even if they desire equality, they cannot reach it. Where men are forbidden to honour a king they honour millionaires, athletes or film-stars instead: even famous prostitutes or gangsters. For spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served; deny it food and it will gobble poison.' C.S.

It may be apocryphal but it may involve the same two gentlemen. Aussie wicket keeper to English batsman "Why are you so fat?" English batsman replies "Because every time I **** your wife, she gives me a biscuit!"
