jugsjugs but some of our funniest humor uses sarcasm against the ignorance of man, and everybody laughs so thats not nasty or rude, but just funny. sarcasm aimed to hurt someone no I cannot abide that of course. but humor can have a trace of sarcasm and it is funny as those who make laughingstocks of themselves have only themselves to blame. I never laugh at a joke aimed to hurt an innocent person, but greedy piggish politicians bring that on themselves. those jokes I can laugh at and do.

Exactly Hatley. :) There are plenty of jokes with those wry sense of humor. I too love jokes. And I too get annoyed when the so called jokes are aimed at hurting another person who runs short of words to retaliate because of emotional hindrance.

I just ignore these type of people. I am happy with my life and i will not let them affect me for their drama. I can live even without them. They need some or more attention but i am sorry i don't have the time and energy to bear with them.

Oh msfrancisco, that is no way. If we ignore them, it is not really hurting them, or making them rethink, is it? There is no point in retaliating in the same fashion either. If we hurt, we are likely to hurt another person without realizing. I tend to let them know in uncertain terms that I dont like it, and if they want my friendship, they need to find other ways to keep themselves amused.

When people pick on others, it annoys me no end. I've also noticed that these people who knowingly hurt another person are people who try to act innocent by saying "I was only joking". That is so cruel, as if that other person's drawback is something to joke about! I read somewhere the difference between the person who inadvertently utters something and the person who does it deliberately is just that one sentence "I was only joking". The person who does it accidentally tends to apologize and not refer to the mistake as joke, while the really nasty person has no compunction in hurting further.

Sarcastic people use this as a defense, teens are often this way to cover up their extreme lack of self confidence. It's very unattractive when this carries into adulthood. When this happens is shows not only a lack of maturity but also a total lack of awareness of how if affect others. Once in a while a snapppy response is called for and gets a laugh but on the whole sarcasium is not needed or wanted.

I don't like being around people like that either. It really brings me down. I hate rudeness too. If I am around a group of people and just one of them is like that..I'm out of there.

Well, then you won't like me. I am sarcastic. I use it in comedic refrain only. Sarcasm is a good comedic tool. Usually on myself.

I agree that sarcasm is a great comedic tool, Celticeagle, and it is not necessarily rude or offensive unless you choose to take it as such, since it is meant to just be funny. Some of my favorite people on here use sarcasm in their humor, and they are very nice, friendly people.

I agree wholeheartedly about sarcasm. I have been termed some pretty bad names at times because people don't know how to take me. Either from ignorance or lack of thought, I am not sure. I enjoy that type of humor that does make you think alittle.

Hi celticeagle, just a couple of questions. If you know you have been called "pretty bad names" then why do you continue in the same vein? You may have lost a few friends I suppose. Were those jokes worth it then? Is it easy to find good friends? The fact that you remember you've been called bad names implies that there are things you too consider bad! So why must everybody's definition of bad conform to yours - to take it from you? If there are quite a few people who cant take it from you then who should change, they or you? I for one would never lose a friend when I have plenty of other things to laugh about. May be you need to see funny side of other things as well.

I had rather not be around those rude and sarcastic cousins of mine. I had to go to the dinners when I was little and my Mother dragged me there. But, thank goodness, when I got old enough I didn't have to go. Now I don't go because of the sarcasism and nasty rude remarks. Happy Mylotting

Those sarcastic people think that they are too smart and are talking very intelligently and others are fools. Just ignore them. That is the punishment for them. They do not deserve to be treated well.

I think that it depends upon the use of the sarcasm and who it is aimed at. I admit that sometimes I use sarcasm when I am angry and frustrated, but I really try not to use it in that context. I do use sarcasm in my humor, but I do not do it to degrade anyone, except myself sometimes, but that is entirely a different story. I can laugh at myself just as easily as anyone else, but I never try to put anybody else down to be funny. That is not humor to me - it is just mean and wrong.

Perhaps we are sarcastic because we see that there IS a need for it, especially with stupid people who say obviously stupid things. That said, people who are automatically sarcastic to all comers probably have emotional/psychological problems. Lash

Sarcasm is one of the greatest things ever brought about by the invention of language. I don't see how that's nasty or rude, especially when you take in the fact that it's used to poke fun at politicians or other such groups. I love my sarcasm!

I too do not like sarcasm as is said its the lowest form of wit or the lowest form of humour. I think people use it to make themselves feel better or maybe because they cant find anything decent or relevant to say. I know someone who finds it really funny to use sarcasm and even though people tell him its not funny he just believes they are saying that because its aimed at them, i think its quite obvious that one would bring it up when aimed at them, i do all the time.

I'm with you 100%. People who ar sarcastic I have no time for or wish to associate with. I don't understand why people are like this. Does it give them a bigger ego or what. It can be so ignoring and inmature.

OhI I've encountered a lot of people like this. Specially where I work. There are old timers there that they think they know everything. And that someone like me don't know much, or can't help them. Sometimes I think they just can't help it. They have been sarcastic for a long time, that even if they are trying to be sincere, it still comes out sounding rude and nasty. Sometimes I feel I just wanna give them a little smack on the head. But alas! I am a professional, so I just become rude to them as well.
