A fun change to the taunt system!

I was thinking about how it was a nice tribute to Monkey Island with the achievement "True Secret of Sword Fighting." This achievement got me thinking, maybe it would be possible to add some of the original insults from Monkey Island into the taunt sound file list. So when someone gets taunted with this sound file they can in return taunt them back and it would use the proper retourt from Monkey Island. I think it would add some more humor to the already hillarious game. You could even add new voice commands Insult and Retourt. For a couple examples ill provide a couple of the original insults and retourts from Monkey Island.

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

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

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

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

What do you think?

    i like the idea of characters responding to each other, but i think it should be original quotes and not quotes from monkey island.

    Could add a lot of additional character to the classes and offer some fun situations when two rivals face off. I like this idea a lot!

    Oh come on, I can do better than that, OneBox.

    "You're pretty STEADY on your feet for a pirate."

    For a retort for the captain?

    "AYE, YER' PRETTY MANLY FER A LASS."

    Or the Beserker taunting a Sharpshooter

    "I'M GOING TO EAT YOUR EYES BEFORE I KILL YOU!"

    Sharpshooter going,

    "I'M GOING TO MAKE LOOOVE TO YOUR WIFE, BEFORE, AND AFTER I KILL YOU" Or something along those lines, I think it'd work pretty well.

    If you guys are really digging the idea I can write up a bunch of scripts for insults/retourts for each classes here are acouple off the top of my head.

    Skirmisher to Berzerker: "Why dont you shave that beard with that axe?!"

    Berzerker in response to Skirmisher: "Im saving it to shave your head off!"

    Archer to Skirmisher: "Look who lept out of their grog barrel to stumble to their death!"

    Skirmisher in response to Archer: "This barrel does more than hold grog you pansy!"

    Somewhat related, I find the Heavy Knight, Gestir, and Huscarl lacking in specific "rivals", they just have a general one or two taunts pertaining to the opposing faction. It'd be good to see them more fleshed out in terms of insults to other teams.

    I could see him replying with a kill, "AND YOU'RE A FILTHY MONGREL" or something like that.
