The Sarcasm Font


Furygun81

Recommended Posts

A website that wants to portray sarcasm over the internet using a new font. Personally I think thats a great idea...........

Hard to read right isn't it? Unfortunately the font doesn't want to work at this precise moment, but I hope that you're clever enough to work it out.

Here's the website itself:

Hmm... So it's basically an italicization, but opposite of the standard right-slant, with a left-slant.

I like the idea, but it's gonna take one heck of an effort for it to catch at all.

This isn't a new font style. It's called "Left-Italic," and is common in Arabic writing and German cartography.

The problem here is they're using a visual effect to achieve something that said effect really doesn't convey. When I look at a word italicized in the other direction, I don't automatically think "Yep. That's sarcasm." I think "Huh. Someone italicized in the other direction."

Oh that is SUCH a good idea, perhaps we should have our sarcasm in Webdings.

People that can't recognise sarcasm without the use of a font don't deserve any internets in the first place. :trollface:

Maybe the sarcasm font should be Comic Sans. :troll:

What ever do you mean, DZ? :lol:

Eh, I always found that the [/sarcasm] tag worked well if something was hard to tell.

oh because using a color other people use for every post they make leaves it so obvious that you're being sarcastic

seriously, it's just brilliant. stop, please, your iridescent intelligence will blind us all with the blazing truth of your genius.
