In the film, "The Hangover", there is a scene where one of the characters say to another:

"You are literally too stupid to insult"


By this, does he mean:

You are too stupid to be able to be insulted


You are too stupid to be able to insult someone else

    I take it he means that the other is too stupid to understand that he is being insulted. – Kate Bunting Feb 4 at 9:01
  • Grammatically, the phrase could mean either one of those two things, according to context and intonation. So this question might be better on Movies & TV than an English-language site. – Rand al'Thor Feb 4 at 9:04
