Sarchasm has been defined as the chasm between the sarcasm speaker and the listener who does not understand it.The delightful thing about it is not that the intended recipient has not got it .What is delicious is that much as the speaker polishes his skills his wit falls flat on the recipient and the speaker has got the pie on his face. Both go home happier and wiser because the speaker has said his piece and the listener has the upper hand because nothing that the speaker has said has touched him.
