If you’re someone who gets so annoyed at Alanis Morissette for her song “Ironic” because it’s so not ironic, then you should check out Sarcasm Society.

Whether you think of sarcasm as the refuge of the weak, the lowest form of humor, or the sharpest weapon in your arsenal, this helpful website features such tidbits as “How to recognize sarcasm,” “How to recognize irony,” “Sarcastic quotes,” and other resources.

MRP’s favorite section was “Sarcastic haikus.”  Inspired, I even wrote a couple:

Fred Thompson dropped out.

Return to “Law and Order”?

I’ve really missed him.


Oscar nods today.

I can’t believe “Norbit” was

not nominated.

Please — indulge your inner Sarcasmosaur and share your haikus.


Bonus MRP moment: Lest you think I’m picking on Alanis Morissette, check out her rendition of the worst song ever written.



  1. Bush wanted to be
    The President but then
    He found it’s hard work

    I support unions
    but the writer’s guild strike blows.
    Boredom: causing scabs.

    Sarcasm isn’t
    something I’m comfortable using;
    I’ll skip this, okay?

    Mama is yelling,
    Obama is getting mad.
    Huckabee scares me.

    Torture tapes are gone
    Whitehouse emails vanish too.
    W’s a magician.

  2. Yay! Thank you, David. Even though I find your third haiku totally questionable. Or maybe you were being sarcastic there?
