1. Bless your heart.
Possibly the king of backhanded compliments, this phrase strikes a fine balance between southern politeness and fuck you. You can’t count on most southerners to drop F-bombs everywhere — that’d be impolite — but if you hear this phrase uttered in the sweetest, most polite voice to grace the noonday heat (often repeated multiple times), someone is saying something loud and clear.
Synonyms: fuck right off
