Thread starter MKay Start date Sep 19, If the words smart and wise mean the same thing, how come smart guy and wise guy are opposites? Hi MKay, and welcome to the forum! I don't necessarily agree that "smart guy" and "wise guy" are opposites. It could be used in a completely honest way: That MKay is a smart guy - he speaks Russian, Ukrainian and English, and he knows how to fix cars and build computers!

Or it could be used sarcastically: Well, you said we'd get to the bar if we turned left at Elm Street. Now we're completely lost! Any other brilliant ideas, smart guy? Its meaning is not, strictly speaking, the opposite of the honest meaning of "smart guy. Yeah, now I see the difference. If honestly, being not native speaker I did not know there is any difference good to know there is, otherwise there is a chance to offend someone , I just trapped on this questions on web, it was referred as unanswered question, I was curious and decided to post it here.
