Karma, sometimes you have to except that some peoples highschools (where her and me went to school) didnt stress some subject’s as much as you want for. If we lissen to eachother we will here what there saying too us.
Haven’t you ever typed quickly (heck, maybe slowly) and found that you goofed on a really simple word? Not just misspelling – but sometimes substituting a totally different word?
It’s usually the little words – Dopers seem to ace the big ones!
And buck up Bucky! A good friend used to say there’s nothing so bad that a sandwich can’t fix it. (Or something like that.) Here’s some thin sliced roast beef, sour cream and horseradish sauce, on dill rye, with alfalfa sprouts. And a pickle.
Granted, many of them may be simple slip-ups, but these happen with disgusting regularity, and are seldom accompanied with enough sarcasm to provide ensuing hilarity. BTW, dopers get the big words right because they think about them.
Oh and what are you trying to say when you say things like, ( irony again.)
Do you mean sarcasm?
Here let me help you.
** Sarcasm **
A form of wit that is marked by the use of sarcastic language and is intended to make its victim the butt of contempt or ridicule.
** Irony **
The use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning.
Got the difference? One last thing stupid…there is no hyphen in my username.
One of the few to be personally welcomed to this board by Ed Zotti.
I had a strange feeling that you were going to squirm out of that thread. I appreciate the opportunity to shoot your sorry ass down.
The hyphen is a mocking reference to the band a-ha.
You obviously don’t understand irony because you consulted a dictionary and are still confused. There is a difference between irony as an occurrence and irony as a literal device. Let me provide the more relevant definition from your misused reference:
Incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs.
Do you not find it ironic that a man with a masters in business administration would complain about the price of popcorn at a theatre? If you don’t, just let me know, and I can explain it to you.
You’ve got your dictionary, all you need now is a user’s guide for it. Thanks for ‘helping’ me. I can’t believe that someone would display such unjustified condescension.
I assume your undergraduate degree was not in the humanities.
