Perils of Stupidity

J: (describes briefly a bit of dishonest business that someone offered her, that she immediately saw through) He obviously thought I was pretty stupid.
Me: Yeah, what a jerk.
J: Yeah.
Me: (thinks for a while, ostensibly doing something else) It's a good thing you're *not* stupid.
J: (laughing) Yeah, that usually works out pretty well for me.
Me: No, I mean, I mean, some people are though...
J: Yeah?
Me: Stupid, I mean. And you know, I hope they don't just get lied to all the time. Because, well, it's not *their* fault.
J: Well, yeah.
Me: You know what I mean?
