I love sarcasm. Australians in general are very good at sarcasm. The problem is that sarcasm can too easily be misunderstood and taken as an offensive insult rather than just a gentle ribbing, taunt or cynical remark. Having said this it's often foreigners to Australian soil that find us rude when we're only being [humourously] sarcastic!
I usually mean no insult when I'm being sarcastic (well, maybe just a little, but it depends on who I'm talking to! :D), and more often than not, I'm just teasing or it's self-deprecating, and most of the time to try and get a laugh. Yes, sarcasm is my sense of humour. LOL
When I'm not being sarcastic, I love reading sarcastic quotes. This is what I've got for you today on Monday Giggles. I hope you enjoy them!
Oh, before I go, if you want to learn how to be sarcastic, see THIS tutorial. Heh heh.
