you must agree that there is something mentally disturbed at work here,
I "must"? No, I don't "must" agree.
I found it to be sort of improvisational and astute humor. When I was a kid, we were encouraged to read a LOT. (This was in the days when the world
was still 'black and white television' - no internet, no remote controls, and one had to go to a REAL library to get new books to read - which is
still my preference). We were enrolled in "book clubs" where a new 'classic' would be delivered every month - I still have most of mine.
Yet, my parents' bookshelves held - naturally - adult fare, so when I'd quickly and voraciously digested the latest 'bom' arrival, I'd go to
their shelves. My favorites were:
the Time-Life series on humanity - in particular, I loved with morbid fascination to read the volume dealing with the history of insanity.
and a little paperwork cartoon-illustrated novelty called "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions." Hence, my keen sarcasm was born....your OP reminded
me of that book.
(Sarcasm is, of course, only one of the many services I offer - and I've handily ingrained it in my kids as well.
, just as my parents delivered it
But also, as you no doubt are aware - and my family members remind each other sharply from time to time, usually when feeling 'defeated' -
sarcasm is a block to communication!
, stated emphatically and with righteous indignation.)
