The Lony Death of Sarcasm as an Art Form.

I fear sarcasm has been killed by passive aggressive communication… So sad really that a well timed put down is just useless when the Maroons take what you say as a compliment.

eq: A bakery in the neighborhood makes fabulous scones. I asked if they could put butter on the scone as I am taking it to go. .. I am told they can give me a package of butter but don’t include anything to spread the butter with. When this is brought to their attention they offer me a plate and a butter knife. I say, “What fabulous service. ” The woman said, “Always.”

Either she knew it was Sarcasm and killed it with passive aggresivity or it went over her head. Either way… Sarcasm is officially fucked!
