    Maybe "glib," or "flippant."
    glib - lacking depth and substance

    flippant- lacking

    witty- good intellectual capacity, clever.


    Don't shortchange yourself, there are plenty of those on the board just dieing for the opportunity to do that to you. Don't help them out.

    It's a question of taste, that's all.

    Not sure what you are saying. Are you saying you prefer people who are glib or flippant to people who are witty?

    I'm saying to one, a statement may be witty, while to someone else, the same statement may be glib or flippant.

    No, your exact quote was "I don't know if I'd consider it witty." So you weren't talking about someone else or you just don't know the difference between words like "I" and words like "others".

    Anyway, after this back and forth, I will withdraw my comment that you are witty and change it to you were flippant.
