Sarcasm is a play of words or remark which uses irony, bitter or cutting expressions to ridicule, mock, taunt or express disdain. While others claimed sarcasm to be a lower form of wit, it takes a certain level of social awareness and intelligence to fully grasp the contents of a sarcastic phrase. Commonly, sarcastic phrases are constructed in such a way that they lack finesse and an intelligent context suitable for reasoning, probably due to its nature, and therefore easily identified with crudeness, barbaric or lack of ethics. Nowadays, sarcasm has evolved along with society and is now used more openly, mostly as a form of dark humor.
