1983 I'm Surrounded By Idiots Pin

"I'm Surrounded By Idiots"


I wore this pin at Strickland Junior High in Denton, TX as I entered my teenage years. It was funny and at the same time inaccurate. I actually spent most of my time with peers who were clever, motivated, and decent people. As it turns out, I was surrounded by winners.


This is one of many curious items collected in JD's House of Miscellany.

    Do you have the nerve to wear it?
  • JD Hancock 6y

    photomequickbooth: Heh. Thanks! ;-)

    wintersoul1: Could I see myself possibly wearing it? Sure, but it would be in a playful way.
  • chemical girl 72 6y

    Well how very honest of you. I trust you dont wear it now?!
  • JD Hancock 6y

    chemical girl 72: I haven't worn it in years. However, even back then people always knew I meant it in jest. I am sarcastic at times, but not mean-spirited.
  • chemical girl 72 6y

    Hey JD, please don't get me wrong. I never meant to imply you were mean-spirited, I too was saying it in jest.
  • JD Hancock 6y

    chemical girl 72: No worries! I did not take it wrong at all. I enjoy your comments very much! ;-)
  • chemical girl 72 6y

    Thank goodness for that. I wont need to go into Flickr silence then;-) Keep up the good work then JD:-)
