Correct me if I'm wrong, but did someone just call us dumb?

I'd like to consider myself a well-educated individual. I went to a small school that I believe gave me an advantage in the classroom when it comes to student-teacher ratios. I earned a merit scholarship and attended Baylor University. Oh, and I can follow IKEA assembly instructions better than most.

I'm smart.
