It seems to me that some people just don’t understand what sarcasm really is, it is cutting and insulting and that is exactly what is supposed to be.The English Collins dictionary explains it like this…..
A speech or writing which actually means the oposite of what someone means to say, usually intended to insult or mock someone. http://dictionary.reverso.net/english-cobuild/sarcasm

Not to be confused with blatent “taking the mickey” which funnily enough could have come from taunting the irish. A more popular idea is that its from rhyming slang “taking the Mickey Bliss” but who knows who this Mickey Bliss was? I like the first idea..

Anyway back to sarcasm – I didn’t used get it at all, and yet sometimes it is funny and we all laugh but how do we feel that essentially we are being crude, rude, hurtful and unkind. Maybe I just am more sensitive to the reality of it. However those are the facts. Think about it.

Nevertheless sometimes you might say something in a way that can break the ice, relax things a bit. For example if you did something really stupid and I said “Oh that was clever.” we would laugh together about it. I think used like that its good, and funny.

Here are some funny quotes, that are used correctly..

Doctors are now saying that Sarcasm will help them detect people with dementia as they just don’t get it. Which is different to people suffering from Alzhiemers as they did get it.
Who gets it?
