Ever hear the expression "don't use sarcasm, sarcasm is ugly" ? The wife says that all the time, when she is being sarcastic, I was wondering where that quote comes from, GONE WITH THE WIND or maybe the GOLDEN GIRLS...but she tells me it was her home ec teacher. I find sarcasm REFRESHING! FUN and funny! *
Ditto dark humor. Why is this monster having tea out of a teapot and cup that looks like a pair of heads???? With MUSTACHES?
Am I making fun of somebody???????

I like it!

Joe Troncale said...

The origin of the word for "sarcasm" is to "tear the flesh." I would say that the Godzilla dragon is the epitome of sarcasm, and I like it!

Sarcasm is the only language I am fluent in!
Love your take on it here too!

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen said...

I have a magnet that says, "sarcasm is just one more free service we offer." Actually, I should probably have that printed on shirts.

Lori Buff said...

I've never been sarcastic, no way, not sweet, little me.
Love the Godzilla.

Gary, your Godzilla pieces are killer! Get it?, I'm not funny.
Seriously though, love the teapot and cup made out of heads!

Are the heads you in your mustache days?

Michèle Hastings said...

I add the mustaches simply because it IS funny, but it adds that extra element, you know????
