Anyway, here's an insult...

I think that was Denethor telling Gandalf that he (Denethor) didn't want to be the dotard chamberlain of an upstart (meaning Aragorn) (right before he jumped on his pire)
Btw, welcome back, Evisse! nice to see you posting again in the Downs!

That was Sam calling himself when he forgot about the elven rope at Emyn Muil(and he said that the Gaffer called him that back in the Shire )

That would be the big fighting orc to the small tracker orc in Mordor, overheard by Frodo and Sam.

But I am not sure if I will be able to spot any more insults that haven't been used yet...
(except from the minor works.)

You are absolutely correct, Guinevere!

Maybe there is something that someone thought but not said, if that could be considered an insult...

I think it's an insult. This quote is bugging me: it sounds familiar, but I can't picture anyone saying it. A clue, maybe?

Just a shot in the dark - Aragorn? It sounds like something he'd say to Gimli and Legolas...

I would never have guessed it, even with the clue, if I didn't happen to come across it while rereading that part of COH yesterday. It's Mablung, talking to Morwen and Nienor, when they go to Nargothrond to look for Turin. Morwen wanted to search herself, but Mablung dissuaded her.

Thanks! But that was more luck than me...

I didn't want to use an insult that's too obscure, or use one that is aplied to every character (like fool). I hope this one will count!


Faint-hearted

PS: it's not really an insult, but it kind of is...
