Then tell me something that is subjectively stupid, that is, tell me
something you think is stupid. For God's sake man give me something to work
with! Otherwise the word "stupid" really should be removed from the English
language. Meaning needs contrast, if nothing that exists and nothing that
does not exist has the "Klogknee" property then the word means nothing.

> Even insult itself, however, does have a place

That was my point, if insults weren't often quite good at getting the job
done they would not be so common in the meme pool.
