I kinda have a bit of a hard time identifying sarcasm/irony tbh.
How the heck am I supposed to know what kind of connections they're making in their head when they say something contradictory or absurd?
If used as a humorous tool I feel like it can be pretty funny, yea.
On the other hand I feel like a lot of people use it more to be passive-aggressive, sassy, or edgy and that's just kinda annoying.
I’m often sarcastic, but I never try to be in a negative way. I use it less on the internet because of the risk of someone misunderstanding. Generally, I feel both sarcasm and irony can and often are funny, but should be used liberally. Irony in stories can be very interesting, too.
I only really use sarcasm as a way to poke fun at things. Passive aggressive sarcasm can be really toxic, I used to be a part of some groups that used sarcasm like that & it's just a never ending cycle of negativity/*****iness.
I think it's a very basic, easily utilized tool for comedy that can be used bring humour to a situation, but tends to get overused/overplayed.
Sokka from Avatar comes to mind when I think of sarcasm done well.
I tend to use sarcasm quite a bit and can appreciate it where it is used for humour. There is a time and a place through so it is always awkward when someone tries to go with sarcasm in the wrong place or where it isn't understood properly by the other party.
