Please note: I am not condoning the content of this article and definitely not opening a discussion here about the subject (didn’t even watch the video above it), but I was taken by the tight, witty, extremely sarcastic humor style here and I wanted to point it out to y’all. Writing humor is tricky. You want to pull your reader in as though the two of you are having a private joke session. At the same time, if you err on the side of silly, you come off looking, well, silly ;-). And if you’re TOO sarcastic, you might sound bitter or turn off your reader. I thought this piece was just right:
@happiwriter writing humor is a delicate art, and this tight, sarcastic style works very well here, which is why I pointed to it as a good example. It’s not the “ha ha” kind–more sophisticated and almost oblique, and obviously the content is not anything we’re examining, like I said in the OP, but I feel that the writer struck a good balance here. Of course, humor, as in many other aspects of life, is a matter of taste 😁.
