Literal Sarcasm: A Different Kind of Sarcasm

Postby Abstract_Logic » Thu Feb 19, 2009 10:40 pm

Do you ever find yourself making literal sarcasms for fun?

My mom asked me to get her a pop (soda) from the refrigerator the other day and I responded "I'll give you a pop alright, a pop in the head!" and I chuckled knowingly. Or another time my sister's friend was over at my house picking up something and she left her car on outside, so I asked her "Do you know your car is running?" and she responded "yes" and then I said "well you better catch it before it runs away!"

When I was younger I used to take things very literally. So now that I'm older I think it's funny to make literal sarcasms like the ones above, regardless of whether or not anyone else thinks they are funny.

That's not sarcasm. Sarcasm is defined as "harsh or bitter derision or irony." I got that definition from this linkhttp://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sarcasm It has several other definitions, but none of them fit what you mentioned. However, I do find jokes like that quite funny.
I'm abnormal, just like everyone else.

OMG you guys are beautiful stars! I love it!! This is EXACTLY what I do!!! It is SO much fun.... to me - that is the most important thing. Whether other's find it funny or not is irrelevant.

What's the most fun is when I do it in gay chat rooms to people who come in just for sex:

THEM: "ooooh who wants some fun ;)??"
ME: "oooooooh me please!!..
THEM: "do you wanna private message me?"
ME: "Yay ok - so what do you wanna do for fun? Collect stamps? Go water ski-ing?"
THEM: "omg are you a timewaster? :wall: "

I am SO hilarious!
