You are laughing at people who through no fault of their own are ignorant of the items they are selling. That's not the same as being stupid although one can be ignorant and stupid all at once.

Most of us here on YT have the advantage of having knowledge about machines and tractors that most city people just don't have. And look, there are a fair number of "what is it" questions here.

I agree with you for the most part OldTanker.

We're all ignorant about something in this world, and anybody with knowledge of that something really has no more right to laugh at us for it than we do about their particular ignorance.

BUT -

It can still be humorous!

With our 4H club we do a lot of fairs and public events with all the farm animals. Being in an urban sprawl area, we get a LOT of comical ignorance, but that's why we're there - to teach and share our knowledge. It makes it fun. And we'd never fault somebody for it.

The people we actually LAUGH at are the ones that come through talking loud as if they KNEW what they're talking about.

It's usually the dad's, the ones who won't ask questions, instead they'll try to impress their wives, kids, us, and everyone else around them with their knowledge.

(once you hear the loud voice, you know you're dealing with one)

"look there kids, see that chicken, now that's a rooster, you can tell by that red thing on top of his head - I bet he lays a lot of eggs"

"that cow over there is a bull, you can tell because it has horns".

People have the internet and google these days, I remember my Dad telling me nearly 50 years ago that as long as you know how to read you can teach yourself anything you need, or want, to know. I always figured if I got took on a deal it was my fault for not being prepared.
