Friendly Sarcasm by dinyctis Friendly Sarcasm by dinyctis
Keeping up with the series and a nice little companion for "Smartass" and "Pain In The Ass" posters.

Sarcasm. Quite a dangerous weapon in the smartass' arsenal! It can bring laughter or destruction. Once again, it's all about timing, as well as the battlefield.

There are two phrases that say "nobody likes a smartass" and "sarcasm is anger's ugly cousin." I tend to agree with these, but only up to a level. I don't think they can be used as widely accurate statements. I myself admire witty sarcasm and don't always see or express anger when using sarcasm. How is it anger when your aim is to make someone laugh or chuckle?

Yes, angry sarcasm is abusive and sucks. Plus, it doesn't really help. There should be an "Anrgy Sarcasm Non-Proliferation Treaty" or something like it. However, friendly sarcasm (which can only be used among trusting, friendly company) is quite amusing. But it is crucial that you pick your stage properly!

I have used it myself for as long as I can remember. By the same token, I have had it used on me quite a few times with excellent results!

That is how I feel about this subject. What about you?

Edit: Oh look! A Daily Deviation! Now I get to spend my day cleaning up my message center that I was keeping so clean and tidy! See what I did there? I was all clever using sarcasm again =P But kidding, of course. Thank you very much!

Wouldn't it be awesome to make a speech on this and point at the steps with a pointy stick?

So very true. It also sucks when your sarcasm goes over the head of the intended recipient.
