Top definition
syntax used in emails, forums and instant messaging to indicate the start of a sarcastic tone thereby eliminating confussion for the reader. this should be used in conjunction with the {/sarcasm} operator to show the conclusion of the sarcasm.

the same style should be applied to other speech patterns when meaning can not be derived from text alone. other examples include {ball busting} or {grumble}.

NOTE: the prefered square brackets should be used whenever possible
