People aren't funny. People are stupid.
I'm glad that my dad taught me early on that if folks were bullying me or making fun of me it was a compliment. Meant I had something they didn't and I should be proud of that fact (and at the first opportunity I should let them know in my own special way how sorry I was they felt inadequate around me that way they could move on and stop pestering me).
You'd be amazed at how well that strategy works. LOL
