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!

Si, siempre. Como son solamente tipografía, los puedo hacer en alta resolución. Los hago para posters de 18x24 (pulgadas).

I love the way you made the statement, and then had clever thoughts to back it up (no that is not sarcasm, friendly or otherwise :giggle:). It's an interesting point of view, and I feel it has a lot of truth to it. I also like the image itself, it's clever, and I enjoy the way the colors work together. Loving the background. :)

Well, I'm adding this to my favorites section and using it for my "poster wall" if you don't mind, because for public service I'd like this to spread. I think it's a very concise and funny way of putting something I've tried to explain to people a few times. Of course sarcasm can be used to just step on people, but it can also be used to meet unreasonably absurd comments in a manner that lightens the conversation up a bit.
People being sarcastic gives me a chance to laugh at myself. That's healthy. ;p

Sarcasm is so sexy! It turns me on. I use sarcasm a lot in my daily life together with the equally sarcastic `eggy. It can be fun when used properly, pity some people have a brain as small as a peanut and misinterpret what can be funny into something bad.

Love how you presented it and keep on being S A R C A S T I C ! :#1:

i think you have enough faves on this. so i feel i should find another way to express my high appreciation of you deviation.
if you don't have a sarcasm card i could make one.

dinyctis Featured By Owner May 22, 2010
Well, I don't often subscribe to the idea that faves are a "prize," so you can go ahead and fave it if you'd like to have easier access to it from your favorites gallery.

You can make a card, if you'd like :)

Here's a thought: Sarcasm is repeating information that is already given, in the hopes that the other party is smart enough to pick up on the absurdity.
Outright stating why it's absurd, on the other hand, shows that you don't think highly enough of the other person's intelligence to allow them to pick up on it themselves.
Ergo, sarcasm actually shows more respect for the other person's intelligence than being straightforward.
So why is it considered rude?
