What's a con artist if he doesn't have brains?
If a con artist is smart, he can con people into things. If he’s too stupid, he can’t find a proper way to con people, due to him having nothing smart to say to persuade someone into doing something (being coned). The difinition of Con is to:
“Persuade (someone) to do or believe something, typically by use of a deception.” If you feel a con artist has deceived/fooled you, see pg 43.
