You have to learn all the insults from pirates. Go to the map area and stand still for pirates to attack you.

You won't be able to reply straight away as you have to learn the comebacks. So wait for them to say it and if you don't have a come back pick something random. You are not penalized for loosing battles.

Insult:This is the END for you, you gutter-crawling cur!
Comeback:And I've got a little TIP for you, get the POINT?

Insult:Soon you'll be wearing my sword like a shish kebab!
Comeback:First you better stop waiving it like a feather-duster.

Insult:My handkerchief will wipe up your blood!
Comeback:So you got that job as janitor, after all.

Insult:People fall at my feet when they see me coming.
Comeback:Even BEFORE they smell your breath?

Insult:I once owned a dog that was smarter then you.
Comeback:He must have taught you everything you know.

Insult:You make me want to puke.
Comeback:You make me think somebody already did.

Insult:Nobody's ever drawn blood from me and nobody ever will.
Comeback:You run THAT fast?

Insult:You fight like a dairy farmer.
Comeback:How appropriate. You fight like a cow.

Insult:I got this scar on my face during a mighty struggle!
Comeback:I hope now you've learned to stop picking your nose.

Insult:Have you stopped wearing diapers yet?
Comeback:Why, did you want to borrow one?

Insult:I've heard you were a contemptible sneak.
Comeback:Too bad no one's ever heard of YOU at all.

Insult:You're no match for my brains, you poor fool.
Comeback:I'd be in real trouble if you ever used them.

Insult:You have the manners of a beggar.
Comeback:I wanted to make sure you'd feel comfortable with me.

Insult:I'm not going to take your insolence sitting down!
Comeback:Your hemorrhoids are flaring up again, eh?

Insult:There are no words for how disgusting you are.
Comeback:Yes there are. You just never learned them.

Insult:I've spoken with apes more polite then you.
Comeback:I'm glad to hear you attended your family reunion.

Each time you learn a new insult write it down and then use it until you get the right comeback. If you don't get the right comeback from the pirate you will have to say it again next time you fight. Rince and repeat until you have heard all of them. The hardest one I had was the apes one and I have to wait for 5 more battles after learning the others before it was even mentioned.

Once you have got the last INSULT the achievement will pop but make sure you learn the comeback for your battle with the sword master :D
