Sarcasm IS wit

I love this post. Not because she gets the whole sarcasm thing, but the quotations she includes are classic. Anyone with a sense of humor should memorize a few, if not all of them. It’s always nice to read/hear a fellow wit quash the whole ‘sarcasm is the lowest form of wit’ thought. It takes intelligence and wit to be sarcastic.
Hope you enjoy this post as much as I did.

Susie Lindau's Wild Ride

Striking up a conversation with random people is something I love to do especially when running errands. It makes a boring trip to the store pleasurable. Sometimes I throw in a bit of humor to add levity to an otherwise mundane situation. I think it surprises some folks so much, it renders them dumbfounded. While staring at the salesperson, bagger or another shopper with a silly smile on my face, I wait for a reaction. Instead I listen to the sound of crickets.

I have come up with an excuse for their blank dull stares after my feeble attempts to make someone smile. I just assume that they don’t speak English. If they respond with a heavy sigh while giving me an eye roll, I want to channel Foghorn Leghorn. He would say, “That’s a joke son. Now, look at me when I’m talkin’ to yah.”

  1. Hey this guy is really good with words. I never heard of him but he should be famous.

  2. Not sure I’ve ever heard of him, but he does seem to have a way with words. He should be famous.

  3. Thanks so much for the reblog and the nice comment! Life would be insanely hard if I couldn’t rely on my sense of humor. Sarcasm is second nature to me I am afraid to say!

Push it out, shove it out, waaaaay out...
