Reddit is probably the place to be if you need to ask something important or in case you are looking to have some fun in your free time. The community is always ready to provide that kind of content, especially when it comes to making fun of those who think they have it all figured out. People who think they are smart sometimes end up being nothing but egocentric in their effort to look that way. Hundreds of thousands of people follow the relevant post on the forum and the list below shows some of the best ones.

1. The catching

We guess this person had no idea what the other user really meant and the whole thing turned out to be hilarious.

2. The show

Now, this is one really fine way of trolling your opponent and we think the last suggestion is spot on, obviously.

3. The copy

It seems that someone took this too personally and we think they really should not be offended by this comparison.

4. The reminder

Here is a post that cannot be accepted by all people because this type of bragging reveals the opposite of high IQ.

Now, this is how people sometimes decide to jump into a conversation and correct others when they are wrong.

6. The audacity

It is an understatement to say that someone who thinks they outplaced these bright minds is ambitious.

Here is a person who does not believe in the use of emoji because he stated he has amazing expression skills.

8. The attempt

Here is one person whose attempt to be funny got destroyed by someone whose opinion we share.

9. The average IQ

Well, this is the kind of post that we do not expect from an intellectual and we guess most people would find it to be fun.

10. The advice

Now, this is one bold piece of advice and we are fairly certain you cannot divide people based on such criteria.

11. The scientist

Here is how one small post can make a lot of sense and we think it is nice to see such opinions, too.

12. The answer

One tenant texted their landlord and got this reply – you can easily see they think they are very important.

13. The truth

Image Source: Reddit

It appears that expressing your opinion online should be backed by arguments if you don’t want to be embarrassed.

14. The knowledge

Image Source: Reddit

We always love when we see the strong irony in a post and we guess that this is a really great example.

15. The accent

Well, we guess that both these people have the right to express their opinion but the latter is correct.

16. The person

Image Source: Reddit

Wow, this is one of the most absurd texts we have ever seen and we guess this person needs to be taught a lesson.

17. The IQ

Image Source: Reddit

It seems that even the professor agrees with the fact that self-proclaimed intellectuals are not to be respected.

18. The swimmers

Image Source: Reddit

It seems that this person really thought they had to explain themselves like that but they actually did not understand the joke.

19. The reference

Image Source: Reddit

Here is one very typical conversation and you can see that the person who commented last had every right to do so.

20. The people

Image Source: Reddit

Wow, this is one post that could spark an endless debate and we can all see the reasons for that.

21. The test

Image Source: Reddit

It is true that people should never underestimate themselves but doing the opposite is equally wrong for obvious reasons.

22. The resume

Image Source: Twitter

People understand that they need to highlight their best qualities and achievements in their resumes but this person did not get that.

23. The texts

Image Source: Reddit

Wow, this is how you can easily lose your audience and we believe the girl stopped replying to this person soon enough.

24. The comments

Image Source: Reddit

People need to be careful when they comment on videos because they just might write something inappropriate.

25. The compliment

Image Source: Reddit

This convo started rather nice but it all went downhill from there – you can see what went wrong here.

26. The fun image

Image Source: Reddit

Well, not all jokes are successful because they miss out on important details. This one, for example, was not a success.

27. The joke

Image Source: Reddit

People are often too keen on correcting others when they should only appreciate the jokes they miss out on.

28. The other fun image

Image Source: Reddit

Now, this is another example of how a person can ruin a joke by being technically correct.

29. The professor

Image Source: Reddit

Wow, people really need to draw attention to themselves by spreading misinformation and you can see that this person had a wild imagination, too!

30. The convo

Image Source: Reddit

Some people can be really annoying in their effort to make themselves appear more literate than others.

31. The lightbulbs

Image Source: Reddit

Here is yet another example of how someone missed the joke and decided to show they knew things.

32. The jokes

Image Source: Reddit

It is obvious that some users have a really curious sense of humor.

33. The exchange

Image Source: Twitter

It seems that some people need to think about the things they intend to comment on before actually doing it and this is one fine example of that.

34. The clarification

Image Source: Reddit

There are many cases when people corrected others for mistaking the doctor and his creation but this joke was right on point and we like it, too!

35. The pie

Image Source: Reddit

We guess that whoever posted this image really thought that it was a hard riddle that not all people would get. Quite contrary, we are fairly certain that most people would easily get the idea and appreciate the clever pun that is more than obvious.
