    Why are people so oblivious to sarcasm? Whenever I sarcastically mock someone (with words AND tone of voice) for being a douchebag it goes over their head completely, but if I call them out on their shit to their face 5 seconds later, they actually react.

    Are people seriously that retarded?

    Your humour's esoteric. It's for people with working brain cells only.

    omg I sound like Jake. icon_razz.gif

    I usually get this kind of humour.

    But I'm not the best at expressing it myself.

    No I mean in real life too.

    Example: Dumb bitch with some guy is playing The Beatles on her laptop really loudly in a public restaurant which is empty except for them, me, my boyfriend, and the employees.
    I say very loudly "COOL, I LOVE THE BEATLES." in a tone dripping with sarcasm.
    Nothing happens.
    I am getting a headache and am in no mood to play this shit with anybody.
    I say very loudly "SHUT THE FUCK UP."
    The guy turns the volume down on the laptop so they can hear it but it's just background noise to me.

    Why were they too stupid to clue in the first time and turn it down?

    People thought Jonathan Swift was actually proposing to boil children, too.

    It's probably going over their heads because you're doing it right. Sarcasm is like a poker face. The better your bluff, the less obvious it is, which is what makes it really funny sometimes. Not everyone can pull that off. Some people are really bad at it which makes it come across as cheesy.

    When you're funny, you're reallllly funny. When you miss the mark, cringe. That's the risk of edgy humor.

    Why not just ask them to turn it down in the first place?

    Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the rest of the world. That's why your posts are a kick to read. Consider it your blessing and your curse.

    When you use Sarcasm and humour as your security blanket, often other people don't find it humourous in the first place.. If the subliminal intent IN THE FIRST PLACE is to ostracise people for your own person insecurities, then your sarcasm/senseofhumour/wit isn't going to work...

    I.e. if you're being sarcastic to point out you're SOOOOOO MUCH MORE CULTUREDANDCOOLANDFASHIONISTA-YANDWITTYANDBETTERATLIFE..


    PEOPLE GENERALLY DON'T GIVE A FUCK.

    but I am better at life than say, some douchebag riding his skateboard on a subway platform.
    I only wish it were legal for me to push people like that on the tracks.

    Then you just have to accept that people are either not going to pay attention, not care, not understand, or not be smart enough to appreciate/comprehend it..

    When you throw stones at a man with no arms, you can't expect him to catch them in defense...

    It's all about context/timing/delivery. Maybe you need to work on those a little more.

    I've been told that I have a really witty sense of humour, even if I do go over-the-top sometimes, so I don't think it's an issue with me.

    People who don't get your humour are mouth breathers.

    Disregard them.

    I spelled it that way as you are Canadian. You're welcome.
