I remember a slightly cruder version that came in handy in bars and
similar situations (I even used this on a drunken "colleague" who was
hitting on me at a professional society meeting reception. He later
apologized for his behavior.)
"Excuse me, but I'm doing some research on the genetic basis of behavior.
So, were you born an a**hole or do you have to practice?"
