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.

RogerEbert has a rather comprehensive essay on this very subject, titled [[http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2008/09/this_is_the_dawning_of_the_age.html "This is the Dawning of the Age of Credulity"]], written after people [[SarcasmFailure completely failed]] to appreciate the sarcasm behind an 'interview' he gave regarding Creationism. This, however, was due to PoesLaw.
