I: You're an 'expert' (self-proclaimed). Self-proclaimed experts are usually 'funny guys'. (At least, many people find them to be 'funny guys').
II: You're an 'expert' (self-proclaimed). As an 'expert' (self-proclaimed), you have come out with some remarkably funny sayings. Like, for instance:
III: You're an 'expert' (self-proclaimed). As Lou Talman has observed (implicitly), it's 'funny' that you don't seem to know the difference between the verbs "to pique" and "to peak". (There is quite a difference, you know, and most real 'experts' would know the difference. Well, maybe 'funny' experts wouldn't. Anyway, it's funny).
