Novelist Tami Hoag - née Mikkelson - tries to capture the language of the French Triangle in Louisiana. In the following dialog between a defense attorney and a cop, insults are traded with considerable imagination. (Quotes from: A Thin Dark Line).

Attorney: I sure as hell don't trust you any farther than I could throw a grown hog.
. . .

Cop: Collusion! You give yourself a hernia in trying to drag that dead horse in to court, you old goat.
. . .

Attorney: Smith Pritchet will bring charges before you can digest the grease you ate for breakfast.
. . .

Gus's features twisted as if he had just got wind of day old road-kill.

Conversation between two cop partners. One of them in a holding cell, thus in trouble.

Nick ( in the cell): I find out you fucked me over, you'll wish your mama and daddy never got past first base.
. . .

Chaz ( from outside the cell) while suggesting a defence lawyer to Nick: That ol' boy can make Lucifer look like the poor misunderstood neglected child of a dysfunctional family.

Heidi 2.0 muses: "Why.... isn't that just beastly."
