So here is a interesting topic.
This too might have to be done in a series as it could spread into various topics..
But lemme get right down to it.
Recently a comment was made to me about a situation wheras the person was being confidently sarcastic.
–So much so that they had to reasure me that I knew that they were being sarcastic to me – so that I didn’t see it other then that. Clearly I didn’t need their reassurase- but I did find it comical that they had to do it.
..and so it got me the thinking. – Why do we indeed need to be sarcastic with people? I mean – I do get it in the sense that we could run a joke here and there – where we are being playful and such — but what about the times when the intent is not to be playful? What is sarcasm intended to do? How is the reciepent supposed to feel – and how is the perpetrator supposed to feel?
Before I tell you what I figure – I looked up the defination of the word “sarcasm” – and here is what I found:
But how is the reciepient supposed to feel? I believe that the person is supposed to be left feeling incompetant, degraded to some degree, – foolish.
– the oposite of the recieptent.
There already so much out there in life wether it be Televsion, Music, Internet – or even just social connection that are poised on tearing someone else down – makin them feel inferior while the perpetrator feels like they are on top of the world and their puup don’t stink…
They have an underlying need to put someone down while they themselves are esteemed….
Back on track —
Sarcasm. Basically a cute yet potent way to insult and cut someone down – and attempt to make them appear foolish.
..thoughts?? Rebuttles? I am game to hear..
Anyways – I have another blog in my mind… – so it is – On To The Next One!
