How can it be the highest form of wit when it's so injurous?

OTOH it can be quite clever and funny(?)

Isn't the saying that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit?

Ah, yes, sorry my mistake but don't they say the highest form of intelligence? That's what I meant to say!

Either way, it's my staple diet!

It is my mission in life to elevate it to a higher form of wit.

DD and I do "being sarcastic" to each other. She has just discovered it and wants to practise - is really funny, e.g."Oh, dad, it's REALLY sunny today, ISN'T it?" with face.

Sticks and stones and all that?!

Love witty sarcastic repartee, tis one of the things I love about living in the UK.I have an american friend who took years to understand it and stop being continually mortally wounded by people.She enjoys it much more here now.
