The sar-chasm that the internet produces, puts a real damper on everyday communication. I like to think this chasm is created when reading on the internet, people misunderstand the text due to lack of voice contact, and a chasm of misunderstanding is created.
I’d like to think that sarcasm can be a beautiful thing, when used correctly and at the right time. I like to think of it as a dancing plastic bag, caught in an updraft, and that it is greater and more useful than the other literary devices. I also like to think that I am a seasoned expert in the world of irony.
Whether that is true or not, I sometimes overuse this tool, in my everyday speaking, as well as my internet blogging. Most things, on my blog can be taken sarcastically, and can usually just be discarded. Some things (I will try and specify what things) are meant to be true and free of anything that might taint it. This is my disclaimer. My blogs will now go something like this,
Man, I think basketball is one of the greatest games ever invented. A true champion’s sport! (sarcasm) And I really enjoy a good hockey match! (truth)
I hope this helps.
I also have updated a few pictures, and will try and do more soon. Check it.
