  •  Those are great. (10+ / 0-)

    I take minor issue, though, with the one-sided definition of sarchasm. Sure, the recipient often doesn't get it; but, especially on the Internet, the sender often bears the practical culpability for the chasm.

    Random anonymous commenter: "Or maybe we should just shoot them if they still don't have a job when their benefits run out."

    Commenter who is not acquainted in any manner with the random anonymous commenter: "Damn dude, that's heartless!"

    First commenter: "Jeez, I was obviously being sarcastic. What the hell is wrong with you? Are you stupid?"

    Hope you fall on your burger and fries.
