#120 Condescending

The man is annoyed that someone called him condescending.
He doesn't think it's true, he thinks he isn't condescending.
But then he explains what condescending means to his friend. She didn't ask him, he just assumed she wouldn't understand it.
Through this assumption, he has proved that he is, in fact, condescending. He assumes she wouldn't understand the the word because she's less intelligent than him.

It's funny because he's annoyed that someone thinks he's condescending, but in the next sentence he shows that he is condescending.
The fact that he is obviously unaware of this adds to the humour.
