How to do sarcasm online

At last: how to do sarcasm online

A typographer has come up with a way to make snide remarks easier than ever before


The 'Sarcastic Font' homepage

*Sarcasm*. </sarcasm>. #Not! Since the dawn of the postmodern age, ironical writers have struggled to imbue the printed word with the nuances of sarcasm. Solutions involve signposting suffixes like "Joke!", so as to spell out any intended irony to those readers too thick to work it out by themselves. (Joke!) Only last year, G2 reported the invention of the "SarkMark", a piece of punctuation that has solved this massive problem once and for all. Wink

In fact, it was such a great idea (not!) that another typographer has come up with perhaps the best solution yet: the "Sarcastic Font", a typeface that renders sarcastic comments in reverse italic script.

I long for sarcasm. I don't have enough sarcasm in my life. And not nearly enough irony.
