"Classic Jewish Insults & Curses"

I got these "six classic Jewish insults and curses" from Alan King's delightful work, Great Jewish Joke Book [(New York: Crown Publishers, 2002), 8-9]:
alan king ♦ May you inherit a hotel and die in every room.

♦ May you grow like an onion, with your head in the ground.

♦ May your bones be broken as often as the Ten Commandments.

♦ May you have a son named after you soon.

♦ May the souls of all of King Solomon's mothers-in-law inhabit you.

♦ May God mistake you for your worst enemy and give you all the curses you wished on him.
