    Default Is Sarcasm, by Nature, Immature?

    I had somebody (an "S") accuse my beloved humor tool of being immature in it of itself. I know sarcasm can be immature, but it isn't inherently so, is it?
    Love is the point.

    I suppose it can be seen as being a passive aggressive way to insult or express displeasure, even if it's used humorously.

    Don't really think it's immature though, merely a style.

    nah, sarcastic people are know to have whiter teeth, be amazing in bed and have laser eyes.

    There are studies! (really, but i think they say they're more successful in general or something

    Suuuure, sarcasm is totally immature. Right.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    If it's immature, then I'm totally screwed.

    Who gives a shit what people think??? I give a shit all the time what people think and what does it get me? Stomach problems, marriage problems, work problems, and just life problems.

    So I say screw it. DON'T take my example, and just be sarcastic to whomever you wish and don't worry about what other people say. Kick other people in the ass. Maybe that will work, because I promise being honest, straight-forward, and doing your best doesn't get you anywhere. I'm thinking about going with a new strategy: lying, farting in people's faces and laughing at them, being sarcastic at every asshole who comes my way, and barfing on my boss's head. Maybe that will give me a raise.

    Wait, that might have been slightly sarcastic.

    That explains why I'm a devil. And fat.

    No, but some people use it in an immature way, and some use it to avoid having a serious discussion waaaay too often.
