Why Are We Always Saying Such Dumb Things?

Like “dumb shit”. Yes, I have yet to hear shit say anything.  It IS pretty dumb.   Thanks for pointing out the obvious. The one I happen to be thinking about at the moment is “stupid-ass” or “stupid-ass’d”. I don’t know how to take that one. If someone says to me I am a stupid-ass, they are falsely assuming that my brains “should” be located in my posterior, rather than my head, and then complaining that they are not. And trying to call me a farm animal too. Personally, I am pleased that my brains are in my head and not my ass. So is that really a complement? More likely someone was not listening in anatomy class. Get your head out of your ass, people (as if that were really possible in the first place). So much of our conversation really says nothing, so I guess most of what we say is really “dumb” after all.

Of course, I have said nothing at all about “why” we say such things so often.  I guess it is just an “ape beating on its chest” kind of thing, to get attention, or to hear ourselves speak.  That is probably why I am writing this blog…

  1. Hey, good to see ya.

    So as I see it there are a few kinds of ass. Smart and dumb. Smartass isn’t exactly a compliment, but if someone calls you that, it’s an admission that you were at least clever, albeit annoying.

    Generally, whichever embellishment one uses for “ass,” it’s an indication of a lack of creativity from the insult-dealer. But be kind; tell them you’ll patiently wait while they think up something clever to say, and you can resume the banter then, after they’ve had a chance to recharge. 😀
