I almost always aim for smartass over dumbass. I don’t always succeed…

I’d rather be known as highly intelligent than a smartass but I don’t always hit the sweet spot.

josie's avatar

I’ve been both to be sure.
But as to which I would rather be, it depends on the context.

Well if you think I’m a dumbass your guard isn’t going to be up is it. Think it over for a few.

@janbb: No, not buying it?

I’m with @Adirondackwannabe. There are some people who I want to think I’m dumber than I really am. After all it’s better not to show all what you know to your opponent right?

janbb's avatar

@cookieman That’s the way the cookie crumbles!

Kardamom's avatar

I hope to never be known as either.

I’m just surprised this hasn’t turned into a conversation about the legitimacy of those two words in the English language yet.
