First American to grasp significance of sarcasm

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by pringa8, Feb 22, 2007.

  1. Chuck Fullmer, 38, yesterday became the first American to get to grips with the concept of sarcasm. "It was weird" Fullmer said. "I was in London and like, talking to this guy and it was raining and he pulled a face and said, "Great weather eh?" and I thought - "Wait a minute, no way is it great weather!". Fullmer then realised that the other man's 'mistake' was in fact deliberate. Fullmer, who is 39 next month and married with two children, aged 8 and 3, plans to use sarcasm himself in future. "I'm, like, using it all the time" he said. "Last weekend I was grilling steaks and I burned them and I said: "Hey, great weather."

  2. :rofl: I love it.
  3. Typical septic

    Can't get it right and just don't understand :roll:
  4. :WStupid:
  5. Funny that. I work with a few Canadians and from talking to them I can tell that they clearly get the concept!

    Maybe those two countries just need to talk some more :)
  6. Maori's don't get / don't like sarcasm.

    Dad's never got it and never will. On the occasions where he's thought long and hard and suspected someone is being a 'smartass' he's made them rethink what they say aloud, in a bar, in close proximity to anyone who looks like their ancestors used to eat the English for breakfast.

    Rosie - btw, according to Dad, the English were too salty.
