Sarcasm [sahr-kaz-uhm]

–noun

1. harsh or bitter derision or irony.

2. a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark: a review full of sarcasms.

Sarcasm is frost-bitten ammunition. It dangles from the tip of a witty man’s tongue like a sharpened icicle, poised to plunge at any second into the soft scalp of the unsuspecting passerby. So how does one wield such a weapon with confidence and skill in today’s disarming climate of electronic communication? How does one penetrate the soullessness of the digital realm with scathing sarcasm without being misunderstood?

Or worse, what can be done to protect such a powerful tool from amateurish hands with fingertips aimed to smear sarcasm relentlessly across instant messages, twitter posts, chatrooms, and facebook pages?

Enter, Sarcmark, the answer to all of your sarcasm-laden prayers.
