Are you stuck on a cruise ship full of people during the corona crisis again? Ever wondered what to say to that inept neighbor from the next cabin who’s on a mission to vaccinate—oh, I mean, who doesn’t want to vaccinate everybody? Well, wonder no more! These euphemisms telling people they are stupid, as suggested by various Reddit users, will cut straight to the chase. And no tinfoil hat can save them now.
A Reddit user by the name of u/lientubay asked the world “What’s the best euphemism for telling people that they’re stupid?” More than 60 thousand people had apparently pondered the same question and the thread skyrocketed. People from all around the world shared various ways to insult stupid people politely by using both modern ingenuity and old folk proverbs.
Finally, instead of awkwardly using the same insult over and over again like “so is your face,” we can once again feel confident in ourselves when encountering a stupid person. What a tough world for us—intelligent people—this is. Thanks for making our life bearable, Reddit!

They didn’t get it.
