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.
