Sarcasm is banned form many Australian campuses because it is form of violence.
I bet it took a real genius to think of this!

Wonderful ... I'd be locked into sarcasm jail without even trying.

How are they expecting to be able to prove sarcasm, especially when it is done with a straight face? I can't see it working in England. Must conversations be digitally recorded so that experts can scrutinise them for minute tone modulations? Or will judgement be based on the previous record of the speaker?- "That guy belongs to the wrong group, and he's just agreed with something I said- that has to be sarcasm!"
