This. Is. Brilliant.
In couples therapy I was informed that sarcasm is repressed anger. The terapist was female. My life partner is female. Within our [blue] pantsuit nation’s PC paradigm, females are ALWAYS right (sarcasm). So, and uncritically, I accepted the assertion about the anger/sarcasm relationship (…after all, I was in therapy with a purpose: trying to make my primary social relationship work for an ‘us’).
As a ‘slow learner’/male, I have just got around to doubting the efficacy of the therapist’s assertion. Sarcasm is more than ‘just’ repressed anger. This video is a amazing example of what else it is, or at least can be. Sarcasm is linguistic shorthand. Exponentially compacted communication. How it is utilized in the video, it visually and auditorily gobsmackingly brilliantly so!
Made my day. Thx!
