When someone insults me.
@NameyMcNameFace, "what are you a fvcking idiot"
"Yes i am"
If you don’t think you’re very smart, and you’re not even as smart as that, then you may just be dumb enough to respond in the manner this mouse did.
A Baldrick-Blackadder conversation
"You aren't half as smart as you think you are."
"That still makes me smarter than you."
But his retort is not productive because he's calling himself very dumb if he's not as smart as "not smart"... Which makes sense since he is stupid, as he proclaims
"That's because you're a vegetable, mouse."
When boss says he wants a "word" with you in their office.
