Sarcasm

Sarcasm: scornful, ironic language
Wit: the power of combining perception with clever expression
Irony: the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of the literal meaning.

I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.
- Mark Twain 

The trouble with her is that she lacks the power of conversation but not the power of speech.
- George Bernard Shaw

There is something about sarcasm and wit that I just love. Not an overdose of it but a fair amount to break up tension or to carry on a happy time. It is especially loved at work...not by the know-it-all interns/1st job out of college types. Usually theirs comes with a sense of proving they know nothing something. But it can definitely ease tense moments at work or make the long day go by. It's not everyone's cup of tea but a nice measure doled out sparingly can lead to a pleasant interaction. I must say I often enjoy the company of those that engage in it a bit. Because I can definitely dish it out, most times, upon waking, FIRST THING in the morn. Just ask my peeps. Actually, I'll end this with a post from one of my favorite websites that I go to get a slice of sarcasm every now and then
