Patterico's Pontifications


Irony Missed

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:22 am

I don’t think this guy understood this post.

Who volunteers to go explain it to him?

UPDATE: Ah — I forgot to use the deadpan tag. I’ll go add it now.

  1. In fairness, if that were the first post of yours I’d ever read, and my sarcasm-detector wasn’t already activated, I as well might have assumed you were serious.

  2. Should have dropped the link in there.

  3. […] Patterico says he was being ironic. Ok. My bad, my apologies. Enjoy Digby’s accurate assessment, but ignore […]

  4. Wolfrum’s a Greenwaldian. He doesn’t have a sense of humor.

  5. Of course, I’d feel wrong not to mention that when you need to endlessly explain when you’re being funny by having a default, humor-explanation post, perhaps your humor is something you should work on suppressing. Just saying.

    See? You should have done what you’re endlessly doing. Otherwise, the dweebs don’t get the joke, and it’s all your fault. For making jokes.

    I suppose I’m now obligated to drop the tag so that William doesn’t miss my intent.

    /sarcasm *sigh*

  6. Nels,

    I agree. And I probably should have used the link to the “I am just kidding!” post. The smug, humorless Wolfrum points to that as proof that I have no sense of humor — but it’s really there for people who don’t understand deadpan humor.

  7. There is no such thing as a bad liberal. “Liberal” is a magic word that applies to those who are in other liberals’ good graces. Until they aren’t. At which point they are conservatives.

  8. “Irony”. Isn’t that like what a cast iron sink feels like?

  9. #7 ???
    Does this mean, now that Ms. Sheehan has been banned from DailyKos, that she is now a conservative?

  10. You’d have to ask this genius. He’s the one I was paraphrasing.

  11. Does this mean, now that Ms. Sheehan has been banned from DailyKos, that she is now a conservative?

    She was just on that awful Faux News talking to that evil bastard Sean Hannity, so that’s probably a yes.
