1 Of Course I Sound like an Idiot. How else Would You Understand Me?
If you spoke like your usual, intellectual self, then they wouldn't be able to follow what you were saying. You have to dumb it down for them.
2 It’s Scary to Know That People like You Are Allowed to Vote
Our country is in their hands. It's a terrifying thought, which is why you need to vote to balance out their vote.
3 I’d like to See Things from Your Point of View, but I Can’t Get My Head That Far up My Butt
Sometimes, it's pointless to try to see things from another person's point of view.
4 If I Wanted to Hurt Myself, I’d Climb up to Your Ego and Jump down to Your IQ Level
If they're really as stupid as this insult insinuates they are, then it'll take them a while to figure out what you've said. They probably won't get angry until long after you've walked away.
5 I’m Sorry if I Hurt Your Feelings when I Called You Stupid. I Thought You Already Knew
It's a simple mistake. They can't blame you for it.
6 At Least You Don’t Have to Worry about a Zombie Apocalypse
After all, a zombie can't eat a brain that doesn't exist.
7 I’d Insult You, but I Won’t do as Well as Nature Did
It's hard to compete with whatever force of nature made them such a complete fool.
8 I Didn’t Say You Were Stupid. I Said You Are Stupid. There’s Nothing past Tense about It
Unfortunately, stupidity doesn't fade away.
9 If I Typed Idiot into Google, Your Picture Would Pop up
This one is a little immature, but it'll get your point across.
10 Why is It Acceptable for You to Be an Idiot but Not for Me to Point It out?
This is a reasonable question.
11 Someday You’ll Go Far… and I Hope You Stay There
You've already wasted enough time with them. You don't need to waste anymore.
12 Stupidity’s Not a Crime, so You’re Free to Go
Luckily, they can't get arrested for saying stupid things. Otherwise, they'd already be locked up.
13 You’re Not Stupid. You Just Have Bad Luck when Thinking
It happens to the best of us.
14 Brains Aren’t Everything. in Your Case, They’re Nothing
Not everyone is blessed with a big brain like you are.
15 How Much Refund do You Expect on Your Head Now That It’s Empty?
They don't deserve to get ripped off like that. They should really call customer service.
16 You Have a Mind like a Steel Trap, Always Closed
Open minds are intelligent minds.
17 I’m Listening. It Just Takes Me a While to Process That Much Stupidity at Once
It's just as hard for someone intelligent to understand someone stupid as it is for someone stupid to understand someone intelligent.
Now you'll be able to put your friends in their place when they act ignorant. What other amazing comebacks have you heard?
