An unintentional response to Gen X's use of sarcasm, a post-ironic comment is one which the speaker actually says what they feel, but with a sarcastic tone.

Dan and Judy are laughing.
Judy looks at the clock and says, "Oh, I'm so sorry, Dan. I have to run, I forgot that I'm meeting up with Toby right now."
Dan says, "That's not cool. I'll never look at you the same," and laughs.
Judy asks, "Were you being post-ironic?"
Dan says, "Of course not," and laughs again.
