I become a useless target :P

I love the trick of flipping a question around to turn it into a statement. Figured out how to do it as a kid – and was a great defense against word-attacks – very common in elementary school onwards – “What are you, an idiot?” “What I am, is an idiot!” Left dumbfounded and speechless, they walk away, having found agreement instead of argument, and I become a useless target :P
