I doubt she'd be able to come up with anything plausible.
Heh, I use a similar strategy by giving them a long, steady, looking-in-the-eyes stare and wait for them to continue on the rant. Shuts 'em right down. Of course I'm an old grey cranky mare so that probably helps a lot
In all seriousness, if you overall like this person's coaching then ignore the digs and concentrate on the good parts of the lessons. I would however let her know that the "eff" word is right out the next time she starts on a rant.
