** One winter, the kids have to join "snow leagues" in order to build snowmen under adult supervision:
-->'''Charlie Brown''': Do you mean to say I can't build a snowman in my own backyard?
-->'''Lucy''': Why woulod you want to, Charlie Brown? Don't be so stupid. In adult organized snow leagues, we have teams and standings and awards and special fields... We even have a newsletter.
-->'''Charlie Brown''': [[DeadpanSnarker Somehow, I expected you would]].
-->'''Lucy''': There's no need to be sarcastic, Charlie Brown.

* Some people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, such as [[UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome Asperger syndrome]], don't get sarcasm, as they often tend to be very LiteralMinded. And even if they do realize that you're being sarcastic, it can still make a conversation very complicated very quickly. Interestingly, autistic people can still ''be'' very sarcastic, even if they can't always recognise sarcasm themselves. What's worse is that these people may want to mean serious things but other people recognize that as sarcasm, causing great frustration, PoorCommunicationKills and other trouble.

* During the episode "Snake Hunt" of ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' we get an abusing scene after a television show host, posing as an archeologist, deliberately sabotages a cave drawing while Chan is preoccupied with the Dark Hand.
-->'''Rank''': And thus, "Just the Artifacts" has the exclusive scoop on this infamous Snake Talisman, whatever that is. You do think everyone was fighting over the chalk drawing, don't you?\\
'''Stefanson''': Maybe we should ask an archeologist.\\
'''Rank''': I AM AN ARCHEOLOGIST!\\
'''Stefanson''': Oh right, destroying 4,000 year-old drawings, yeah that's what archeologists do.

* From ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' we get an interesting subversion of this with Sansa Stark. She ''isn't'' blind to the vast majority the snark aimed at her, but ''is'' painfully aware that neither her relative position nor available skill-set allow her to openly [[SnarkToSnarkCombat snap back in kind]] without risk of physical and social backdraft. So, she actively uses PolitenessJudo to try to [[SarcasmFailure turn the sarcasm around]], while usually appearing as if it sailed right over her pretty little head.
** Podrick Payne, however, does play it rather straighter. Given he squires for [[DeadpanSnarker Tyrion]], this is rather amusing.

** He then notes that if your reactions were laughter or outrage, you do not have Humor Impairment Syndrome, since you got that is was supposed to be funny, the HIS people would be writing in to say [[ComicallyMissingthePoint they'd use hand signals or asking where they could buy those shorts.]]

* Marcus in ''About A Boy'', who can also be a little LiteralMinded. For instance, in one scene Will suggests Marcus try to fit in with the others in his class by wearing a "disguise", meaning he should dress more like they do; Marcus asks if he means [[Main/WigDressAccent wearing a mustache]], and when Will tells him that a 12 year old with a mustache wouldn't stand out at all, he takes the comment seriously. Later on, Marcus at least figures out how to fake the proper response to such remarks even if he doesn't actually understand them - replying with an equally sarcastic "ha, ha".

* Due to lacking an ability to demonstrate tone, it's a poor idea to try to be sarcastic on the Internet. There are stories of people getting banned from several online communities for sarcastically stating something that's against the Terms of Use, the most famous incidents involving "I am twelve and what is this?" when you need to be 13 or over to make an account.
** This was the original reason PoesLaw was formulated, and a frequent source of examples.
