saying something ironically

saying the opposite of what you mean in a jokingly "as a matter of fact" tone
From Disney's The Lion King 1 1/2

(after trying to break up Simba and Nala)
Timon: Well, that worked like a dream.
Pumbaa: It did?
Timon: Sarcasm is a foreign language to you, isn't it?

A tongue of which the user speaks of something the complete opposite of what the user means. It often has the best comedic value.
Ex. 1: "I'm okay. Don't mind the gaping wound and the sword protruding from my back. I'm fine. Feel like a million fucking bucks, dammit."

Ex. 2:
"Is your car stuck in the mud?"
"No, no, of course not. I'm only practicing how to spray mud using my tires.

Jackass."

the bastard stepchild of irony

Your body's natural defense against stupid.
You walk into a hospital room where your friend is on a bed with his left leg, no arms, and only half of his prick. You say,"How ya doin, man?"
He says,"Oh, just great. I feel better than ever. I could just hop all around the world, I feel so great."
You say,"Really? That's some great news."

See, this isn't your friend trying to make you look stupid, which if you said one or both of these things, you might be, it was his immune system acting due to the high levels of stupidity being taken into his brain. It automatically responded with sarcasm. So don't take it personaly.

A word that gives you the possibility to play with your imagination when asked stupid questions.
A random is painting his fence, when his neighbor comes up to him and asks a stupid question:

Neighbor: Oh, you're painting your fence today?
Random: No, I'm milking cows on jupiter, while drinking light soda and driving.
Neighbour: Was that sarcasm?
Random: Now, why would you think that?

Something that nobody on the internet can ever recognize.
Sarcasm post: Man, why does it gotta be summer already? Being trapped in a small building and being forced to listen to lectures is the funnest thing in the world!

Replier: What are you talking about?!? School sucks! You're retarded!

Noun. A very British form of humour which derives laughs from saying something while really meaning something else. Often (though not always, contrary to popular belief) used in scathing remarks.

The word 'Sarcasm' is derived from a Greek word meaning 'tearing flesh', which is why sarcastic vegetarians are so ironic.

See also irony.
Bob: I saw 'The Others' on DVD the other day.
Dave: Oh, cool. That movie wasn't over-rated and shitty at all!
Bob: ...Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, you know.
Dave: ...Fuck you.

God's gift to man.
Incredibly humourous if used correctly.
sarcasm:

Billy-"Is sarcasm really God's gift to man?"
Me-"No, I just said that for no reason. F-nugget."
