SARCASM….DO IT IN PRIVATE AND WASH YOUR HANDS AFTERWARD?….I asked this morning if I should avoid sarcasm in my posts, and so far the responses have been 100% in favor of sarcasm, 0% opposed. I even got a couple of emails telling me I wasn’t sarcastic enough.
As I told one of them, a few years ago (a couple of decades ago, actually) my boss made me pay her a quarter every time I said something sarcastic. It worked out OK in the end: I managed to cut down on my public sarcasm, and every couple of months we went out and had a few beers with the money I’d paid her.
But now I’m backsliding. Sigh.
