THE TRUTH ABOUT SARCASM***

December-02-2011-00-50-45-random7

Sarcasm: n. using irony to ridicule and show contempt

A few examples will suffice but there are tens of examples.

When someone does something wrong – you contemptuously say Very good, well done, nice!

The irony is that you unexpectedly say nice or good to something bad and your tone of voice can be slightly exaggerated and demeaning or contemptuous with a hint of ridicule.

 

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

 

The irony is that you take long walks with humans that you like but you prefer annoying humans to take long walks alone so they don’t bother you. The contempt expressed is for annoying humans.

Let’s share. You’ll take the grenade. I’ll take the pin.

The irony is that sharing is usually done for mutual benefit and if you blow yourself up with a grenade then you kill yourself. Sharing implies liking someone and it is not someone you want killed. You are actually ridiculing the human and expressing a cloaked dislike or contempt for them.

THE TRUTH ABOUT IRONY***

irony-happiness-sadness-presence-absense-demotivational-posters-1325417851

Irony: n. an opposite reaction to what was expected and/or a juxtaposition of opposites with relatively unique unexpected correspondences and sometimes mildly humorous

Examples are the best way to learn about what irony means.

Two married marriage councilors got divorced.

What is unique and unexpected or ironic is that two supposed marriage experts couldn’t make their own marriage work and it may evoke mild laughter in the reader.

A pet dog called Giant was smaller than a cat.

It is ironic or unusual that an expected giant dog would actually be physically very small and it is also somewhat humorous.

The stray dog was killed by an animal rescue truck.

It is unexpected that a truck designed to rescue animals actually winds up killing one in need and it is mildly humorous for one with a macabre sense of humor.
