BRENDAN Gleeson makes it into Short-List Magazine's 30 Best Movie Insults list with his put down of Colin Farrell in In Bruges. 'Ray, you are about the worst tourist in the whole world,' he said after he had shown him the medieval town's sights. There are the usual expletive-ridden put downs in the list, making the inclusion of this gem from Python's French knight in The Holy Grail (directed at King Arthur) all the more welcome. 'I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food-trough wiper. I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries!'
