I saw this on a POSTER:

I actually went to work with a good attitude, and then sarcasm stepped in and saved the day.

Pucker Mob opened for Ship of Fools.

Yup, I always turn right away to Reader's Digest to keep myself up to date on all the latest intellectual knowledge.

When you’re brain first hears a sarcastic comment ...

When my brain first read that, I wanted to scream, "It's not YOU ARE brain; it's YOUR brain!"

" you might want to make sure that you have at least one sarcastic friend "

Like this is a problem.

Like I didn't know that already.

*rolls eyes*

Wow, that is soooooo fascinating.

Raises hand.

"Like if I say, perhaps we should drop plans to build a wall with Mexico in favor of building a roof over North Korea, what is that?"

"Oh, Oh...Bernie Sanders went to a chiropractor, who referred him to a paleontologist."

i just rolled my eyes so hard i saw my brain

So glad I never see any sarcasm on this blog.
