    Should sarcasm be outlawed?

    I find that it can confuse some people, even when they think it's fun.

    Sarcasm is what keeps me sane.

    Of course sarcasm should be outlawed, we all thrive on really simple colorless test. Oh, lets outlaw humor and emotion too!

    Hey let's pretend to be Vulcans! I always wanted bangs and pointed ears.

    I am so glad to see political correctness evolving into thought orthodoxy.

    Sarcasm displays a certain twist on intelligence and can be a good, useful thing. It can be confusing however.

    I dont see how you could effectively outlaw it though lol.
