  • Indeed, the English word “sarcasm” is derived from a Greek verb that literally means “to tear flesh like dogs.” (Compare Galatians 5:15.) Just as a dog uses his sharp incisor teeth to tear flesh off a bone, a sarcastic person can strip another of his dignity. As the Journal of Contemporary Ethnography says: “The core of sarcasm . . . is open hostility or contempt.” It matters little if it’s a direct attack, a subtle put-down, or a slip of the tongue. An unkind, sarcastic remark makes someone an object of derision—a victim.

  • Well, in psychology, it is considered a fact that funny people are much more attractive than others. And sarcastic people are often funny too, because they know the art of making creative sentences, which are often humorous. So, I think sarcasm IS attractive, but not too much. I don`t like much sarcasm, I believe in simplicity. I must say this, I AM a bit sarcastic. Just not on Answerbag.
