It is very easy to do sarcasm badly – language, tone and general wit all combining to create the ultimate verbal comeback. Sarcasm may well be the lowest form of humour, but I believe that the most successful sarcasm does not even make you laugh. Instead, its serpent-tongued intelligence slithers in gradually, and your mind reverts to playbacks, appreciating its brilliance and infallible confidence – more often than not, the unspoken truth.
With this in mind, written sarcasm is even harder to achieve. Thankfully, street artist Mobstr is at hand (armed with a spray can) to show us how it is done and essentially make you feel small in the process – sarcasm well done.
