Sarcasm - I think I get it now! + Tag Game Update

My mum came into my room yesterday, as she was talking to me she looked at my computer screen and said sarkie bitch. I said what he’s being nice.

She laughed and said 'Do you remember the other day when you said ‘I’ve earned 65 dollars on you tube’ and I said ‘deep joy thirty quid hope it was worth all the crap’ anyway you said ‘more like forty pounds with the way the pound is at the moment’. And I said I sure all the people losing their jobs, will take comfort that your a tenner better off. You said WHAT and I said that’s sarcasm look it up.

So I thought I would this is what I found.

  • Remarks that mean the opposite of what they say and are intended to mock or deride.
  • Mocking or ironic language intended to convey scorn or insult.

Anyway I think I get it. This was the best example I could find is king of sarcasm, Basil Fawlty, said when Mrs Richards complains about the view of Torquay: "What did you expect to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically...?"

Being a big user of sarcasm my mum told me the best way to deal with sarcastic people is to pretend you don’t understand, if someone gives a backhand compliment thank them it really pisses them off.

Right before you guys say 'hey you said you weren't going to do any more videos for a while' now I have been tagged 3 times for the wrong hand drawing tag game by John, Sam and Tom Milsom and will do a video on that today. The way I feel at the moment it maybe a while before I do another video but who knows because I can change my mind and its up to me.

Im still thinking about my 5 albums got lots to go through but I have chosen two already and its giving me good memories.

Have a good weekend everyone
