Me? Sarcastic?!

The Sarcasm Society:

Sarcasm usually requires a quick wit, and the ability to extract the minutest points of weakness in a conversation. So it is quite unlikely that it is the lowest form of humor as some would like to call it. Perhaps not being able to enjoy sarcasm is directly related to not having the ability to come up with sarcastic comments, which in turn creates a feeling of inadequacy…
Now I know what most of you are going to say, and I cannot wait to hear from each and every one of you.

The author provides How To Be Sarcastic: A Beginners Guide for you deprived souls who need some practice.

Sarcasm can be difficult in non-verbal communication, often construed as an insult or being incomprehensible if not explicit about your intention. Online Sarcasm describes methods most of us are familiar with, such as using an emoticon (which I loath):

However, be forewarned that the chances of your emoticons successfully communicating your intentions are entirely dependant on the quality of your sardonicity, as well as the opposite party’s ability to comprehend sarcasm.

I still propose the Sarcasm Point though¡

The Sarcasm Point

Sarcasm PointA Giant Step Forward for Punctuation¡ – Introducing the long-awaited sarcasm point:

The English language must evolve. Not with emoticons or lol or brb or l8r or GRATUITOUS all caps used for emphasis, not with Spanglish or bumbling Bushisms or even cryptic Kerryisms. We don’t need more quotation marks that “hedge” or try to make the same “old” thing sound “fresh”…
It is time for the adoption of the sarcasm point. Why the sarcasm point? We have a mark that conveys that we mean or know something. We have one that says it with volume and force! We have one that communicates that we don’t know something, don’t we?

I agree¡
