45 Know-It-All People Who Will Make You LOL At How 'Smart' They Are

by Liezel

There are so many different types of smart people in the world. There are those who are book smart, there are those who are street smart, and then there are those who are of the smartass variety. 

That last kind is the people who love thinking and pretending that they have the highest IQ in the room and that they’re smarter than everyone else they meet. And, of course, they love bragging about just how smart they are. 

No matter what topic it is or no matter who they’re talking to, they’ll pretend like they’re an expert in the field even if they have zero clue what’s being talked about. They’re the wannabe eggheads that make every conversation insufferable just because of their insatiable desire to prove that they’re smarter than everyone they’re talking to. 

The thing is, with these people, the more that they brag, the higher that they fall. And although we suffer from a huge bout of second-hand embarrassment seeing them make utter fools of themselves, it’s still pretty fun to see them get what they deserve. 

In Reddit, there is a community dedicated to just poking fun at these people. And with a following of over 1.5 million people, we can safely say that a lot of folks are very interested in seeing these great minds ruin themselves with their own “intelligence.”

We wonder if these people are really absolutely clueless of how much they’re being the killjoy in all the situations they try to be a smartass. It seems like the thing they have in common is a severe lack of self-awareness. 

Thankfully, they’re not getting away with that kind of attitude. What do you think is the best way to deal with a smartass?
