  • Proposals for a sarcasm font

    Due to an abundance of blatantly obvious sarcastic posts (props to cory)that are apparently not that obvious to some people, the need has been expressed for an official "sarcasm font".

    I would like to open the floor for discussion on possibilities. I realize the very existence of this thread opens it up for some sarcastic comments, and I welcome them (seeing that my funny bones reaction is geared 90% toward sarcasm and irony), but it would be great to get some serious, feasible, ideas to solve this problem. If we can get the Broncos boards to do it, I guarantee the idea will spread like wildfire to become the biggest message board innovation since smilies.


    So, my thoughts. We could do a smiley with a sign that says "Sarcasm", but a lot of people skip over even highly visible ones.

    My best idea is a font that has water droplets coming off it (as in it's "dripping" with sarcasm).

    What other ideas can we come up with?

    [Sarcasm] Insert sarcastic remark here. :dance: [/Sarcasm]

    I guess thats one option, but i think that just leaving it alone is just as funny because you get all those angry remarks after from the people who didn't get it.. That just add to the fun of the post IMO.. lol

          That would work, but it would have to be a one touch button, because noone is going to take the time to type out [sarcasm] . . . we're all too lazy for that.

              Your mom is a nerd


              edit: whoa, flashback to my high school days . . . still got the "your mom" reflex

              Edit#2: See, a sarcasm font for my first response would have avoided all the people telling me to leave your mom alone

                Sarcasm is difficult for some to recognize.

                I've occasionally ended a post with.

                /sarcasm off


                And this will get moved to the feedback forum I'm sure.

                    Doah, didn't think about putting it in there. Quick, someone mention football so it doesn't get moved.

                    Hey, Broncos_own, your mom is a football
