“You’re really funny, except for when you propose something (jokingly) disparaging about cats or ‘I’m offended’ culture” is decidedly similar to “You’re really smart except for when you’re criticizing mandates and politics and stuff I agree with that you don’t.”
Remarkably similar. I’m funny except when you don’t like what I say. I’m intelligent except when you don’t like what I say.
This is a you thing more than a me thing. Next you’ll tell me the dutch oven is hilariously clever until I do it to you.
