Book of Phrases?

Posted by Chester Helm on November 15, 1999

I'm interested in finding a book or web site that offers a collection of reasonably artful phrases of fault-finding, disparagement, low appraisal, and so forth. I would like something that avoids the purely boorish or vulgar. Vitpuperation might be alright - it would be a fine line, though. Know of anything? Thank you.
