Sarcasm-opposite if what you really mean.

Not necessarily. Sarcasm is the use of irony.
irony:The use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning. And once again, I said don't take me literally. No one should take it literally if it's a "joke" because you obviously aren't supposed to take jokes literally. Read the definition of irony very closely.

I voted warm-blooded because they move like mammals. (joking)

...You make up some really cornny/weak/ odd and unclear jokes...
huh.gif  hmm.gif



Quote


Odd yes, because it's in response to the Dinosaurs Walk Like Mammals Thread and the debate in there. It's not my actual reason as to why they are warm-blooded. that's why it's a "joke". Meaning, don't take the statement seriously.  sleepy.gif



Quote


I find your "jokes" unclear because I dont know how its a joke or way you posted it for that mater
huh.gif  dontgetit.gif . Its not funny and it says nothing. I dont remember saying anything about your statment being serious...or saying anything about it to start so thats an other unclear statement to me rolleyes.gif .



Quote


Read the last line of my post. Joking means don't take my statement seriously. I was being sarcastic, it wasn't meant for comedic purposes. You do know what sarcasm is, correct?

I'll put this  w00t.gif  next time to indicate sarcasm...so you don't get confused next time around.



QUOTE(Yelekiah @ Oct 28 2005, 06:49 AM) View Post

I use the word joking loosely-it can also mean I am being sarcastic. It simply means don't take me seriously or literally.
edit:

joking:Something not to be taken seriously; a triviality
(read it and weep)

....Uhh no. This is just something I say when people want to use words incorrectly and try to get jazzy with it (Try to use their incorrect words to prove a point and come at me with it.) Not a game as much as just getting nic-picky with words  huh.gif .



QUOTE(RedX @ Oct 28 2005, 08:47 AM) View Post

...Do I really have to do this???You changed the meaning of your post from a joke to being sarcastic...which I didnt care about till you got jazzy at the end and then again with your next post.

Do I really have to do this. This is my previous post. I think you missed it. With sarcasm, you don't take someone seriously or literally, hence a joke, derr.

Yelekiah said it was a joke and sarcasm right from the word go, so he was not being jazzy with words. He told you what he meant in the very beginning.

I posted at 6:56pm, then you posted at 7:14pm Eastern time. You took a while to respond and you continue to premeditate on your next move. You're the one who keeps perpetuating this. And no, you don't have me. Anyone else think they are cold-blooded? Not too many votes on that....

Yes I think that they are warm blooded. Warm blooded even if they need to use the sun to warm it up...
