I can be when common sense simply doesn't work. In your question, you stated that stupid questions deserve stupid answers. I quite agree. But sometimes I'd look at it differently: "There is no such thing as a stupid question"....and every question deserves an answer. The idea of using irony or sarcasm is to ridicule or mock somebody with biting crudeness to get home the point that their question is pointless, absurd, silly....and because sometimes it is simply not just possible to make them see how ridiculous their questions are, and to bring somebody physically behind the woodshed and give those persons what they simply & richly deserve...a sound trashing. However, if this method still doesn't work, an additional layer of contemptous sarcasm can be hurled at will...this time for destructive purposes. Understanding the subtlety of this usage requires second-order interpretation of the speaker or writer's intentions. This sophisticated understanding is sometimes lacking in people with brain damage, dementia and low IQ. In using sarcasm here, it is not possible to use or convey it by speaking more slowly and with a lower pitch, because we are using the written source. Therefore a quick selection of choice words is necessary. An example: "May the "force" be with you because nobody else will." --or-- "Now we have shot more holes in your hypothesis than a secondhand dartboard." --or-- "We know just the place for you, it's called "Webs.com". They have a similar message board that is infested with others of your kind - semi-literate, poorly educated in-breds." AS DEFINED: SARCASM: is “a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter jibe or taunt." IRONY: is a rhetorical device, literary technique, or situation in which there is an incongruity or discordance that goes beyond the simple and evident meaning of words or actions. EX. "as soft as concrete" .

I am kind of a sarcastic person. Sometimes when people say something dumb I smirk or I go ' oh god ' I am usually respectful though as long as the other person is respectful of me. I find that being sarcastic although not completely necessary at times is pretty damn useful when someone is being a jerk, It gives you the ability to fight back quicky with no lapse in time, so the insults can just come flying.... in other words.. having a sarcastic nature is a good defense sometimes. Most stupid questions DO deserve stupid answers. Some people really shouldn't speak lol but at least its funny when they do. Hey we all have a slip up every now and again, but we all need that I guess so we can all have a good laugh. I don't try to offend people, I crack a joke back like' oh really ' and we laugh about it. I try not to make them feel bad about the answer even though every once in a while you can't help it. But ... just keep in mind that everyone deserves respect. Even if they may slip up and say something totally ridiculous from time to time, we all deserve a free pass. I'm brunette and I allow myself " Three Blonde Moments" a year... so far it seems to keep my stupid thoughts on the INSIDE of my head... because I am only allowed three :D lol ahhhh life ... stop the world I wanna get offfff

Im a little sarcastic/ironic but if I say something that could be seen as offensive I always smile afterwards so they know I'm only joking, you can get away with a lot more this way. If i really think it might have offended someone then I'll tell them sincerely I was only joking. Too be honest though certain people just don't get sarcasm.

Not usually sarcastic, but when I'm in the right mood or some question tips me off, I can be very mocking.

Guess that no child left behind is working their getting out dumber then when they went in ( not all I hope )

Racheal Originally Answered: B&A: If a story is partially 3rd person & 1st person, would it be understandable?
It's an interesting idea, but it'd be odd if out of nowhere she's suddenly narrating. It's your story, but I would suggest presenting an explanation for it or clearly setting it apart in some way. For example, those parts could be from her diary. Or you could put the first person chapters in italics - like how thoughts are usually shown in novels in italics, except for your book it's entire chapters. I once read a book that did this in a very interesting way - every few chapters, or sometimes at the end of a chapter, it would switch to a typewriter-like font and first person. At the end, it was revealed that these sections in first person were audio recordings that the main character was making over the course of the story, to document his mission. EDIT: Hey, I didn't notice your picture before. NaNoWriMo winner? That's awesome! I always forget about it until it's already started, unfortunately. Hopefully not this year, though. xD
