Back-handed Compliments

This community is only for posting back-handed compliments; please, no other kinds of joke. Back-handed compliments are compliments that lend themselves to insulting interpretations or implications. E.g. "I think it's so cool that you're comfortable with how you look." A lame back-handed compliment immediately sounds like an insult. A quality back-handed compliment truly equivocates between complimenting and insulting the recipient; it only seems insulting after you think about it.
