'''[[PotholeMagnet People have a tendency to pothole to this page every single time they're being sarcastic]]. Our advice is that before you do this, you ask yourself if the sarcasm is visible without the pothole. If it is, ask yourself if there's any reason for you to pothole here.''' After all, you don't pothole to SincerityMode every time you mean what you say.

Sarcasm mode is OlderThanRadio: the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irony_mark irony mark]], '''⸮''', was proposed in the 19th century. Since then, it has also shown up in comics, both daily strips and comic books, generally in the form of a variant speech bubble outline (jagged, dripping, or icicled) or a different typeface than normally used.

This is also seen in FauxHTMLTags: <sarcasm> </sarcasm> form. Usually with this kind of sarcasm tag, only the closing tag is used. It's not as much fun, and might even be [[ViewersAreMorons insulting,]] to announce in advance that you're being sarcastic, and oh, how the world weeps when ''you're'' insulted, right? </sarcasm> More recently this is further shortened to just appending /s at the end of the text.
