Luigi Vercotti, on the subject of Doug Piranha :
"I was terrified of him. Everyone was terrified of Doug. I've seen grown men pull their own heads off rather than see Doug. Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug.
He used sarcasm. He knew all the tricks, dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and satire."
I actually found that to be incredibly thought provoking, inciteful and witty. It's actually made my visit to the forum today worthwhile. I've made a note of it so that I can maybe use it at a dinner party to make my friends think that I'm an intellectual.
OT...As for sarcasm. Personally, I rarely use it.
