We've all done it: written a scathing sarcastic comment only to have someone interpret it literally and vehemently disagree. Or read a comment and thought "Is this poster serious?" Others have even suggested the need for a sarcasm tag. Now, I'm not an html programmer, but I'm here to offer a suggestion. I think the sarcasm tag should be `s. A more traditional tag might be <\s> or /s, but those things might actually mean something in some program, and mess things up. Instead, let's give a little love to our lonely friend who spends his life sheltered under a tiny, wavy hat. The ` symbol is under the tilde in the upper left of your keyboard. We usually only see him when we overshoot the tab key, or our finger stumbles in a rush to "esc". And then we delete him as soon as possible! See how it can work: "TJ is such a pessimist. `s" "I love watching Koyie Hill bat. `s" Now, it's not necessary all the time. People have been snarking without tags for years. (And, according to Dr. Seuss, tagging snarks for centuries.) But give it a try! Let's start a BCB meme!
