    Canadian money isn’t worth much but it’s pretty.

    Hey but this was! I’m surprised you didn’t comment on it.

    I guess we are hijacking this thread.
    Lets go hijack Gary’s thread. He won’t mind.

    Sarcasm is usually just truth, thinly veiled. If it offends you, it has done it's job. like it should

    I don't know what FM means, but I've read sarcasm referred to as verbal abuse and bullying. If those descriptions seem over-the-top, look at it this way:
    Sarcasm is not only easier but much safer than alternatives: a person can "say" virtually anything, and there are no consequences;
    And it can be a double-whammy if the person on the receiving end protests, because the sarcastic individual may then go 'Whatsamatter,, can't you take a joke?' or 'You're just too sensitive.'

    Lon, I suspect that so many posters here want to unload sarcasm on folks who can appreciate or understand it. They spend too much time with their kids and grand kids who haven't a clue what sarcasm or exaggeration are. It's LOST of them. They take EVERYTHING literally. So when we sit down with a glass wine, a beer or a cup of coffee to relax in front of this boob tube we know we can unleash our true thoughts to people of our age who will understand them.
