Are you an American or an American’t?

American: a person on whom sarcasm and self-awareness are both lost.

Great — another group of wingnuts for me to unintentionally annoy and enrage through sarcasm — except these ones are armed.

I used to think Americans don’t get sarcasm. I say Americans, I mean most humans. I say sarcasm, I mean my sense of humour.

Then I woke up in a strange parallel world where Americans love sarcasm and English people can’t take a joke — or Twitter as I like to call it.

I found people who are more sarcastic than me. IN AMERICA. At last the torch has been passed.

Their sarcasm has restored my faith in humanity — or at least reset it to its default factory settings.

As a subeditor I was told I’d picked up American grammar — which means that somewhere there’s an American riddled with sarcasm.

It’s official: on Twitter there are Americans who understand, use and appreciate sarcasm… You’re welcome.

I’ve decided to move to America — where my sarcasm’s appreciated.

I still worry that my sarcasm will get me shot at the airport as a suspected terrorist or something.

But the internet has permanently disavowed me of the notion that Americans don’t get sarcasm. I mean that in a good way.

Admittedly, every sarcastic American friend I have is a New Yorker, so that may have something to do with it.
