“Please accept my resignation. I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member.” (Groucho Marx)


I doubt that anyone who reads this blog regularly will be surprised to hear that I love sarcasm. My first words as a child were probably, “yeah, so what’s your point?” I don’t have any great insight into how this happened but it has become such a huge part of my personality that I couldn’t write this blog without it. It’s most likely a subconscious defense mechanism for the insanity of everyday life. Let’s face it, the world is a strange and absurd place where people do and say some crazy sh*t. As a life long student of human nature and the written word I have encountered many examples of pure sarcasm that serve as my inspiration. Allow me to share my collection of wonderfully sarcastic wit.
