All Aboard the Meme Express – Wednesday, October 22, 2008

October is Sarcastic Month. The origins of this celebration are dubious, but does that matter, anyway? The Meme Express prompt today is sarcastic.

Rod Stewart’s 1978 single, “I Was Only Joking,” is included here as inspiration.



Here are a few optional questions, to jump-start your inspirational engine:

Are you sarcastic?

Who is the most sarcastic person you know?

Is sarcasm humorous or hurtful?

Does a simple caveat (such as, “Just kidding”) clear things up?

What is the difference (in your opinion) between sarcasm and satire?

Would you like to share a sarcastic statement or joke on your blog?

Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create a drawing, a poem, a short story, or a journal entry. Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)

Feel free to bookmark it for future reference!

Of course, if this prompt seems to stump you, feel free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.

  2. Hey y'all. Hope you like this one. I'm doing a story on vampires. It's a continuing thing at this point. I'm using prompts from different places and writing segments each day. Let me know what you think!

  3. Linda, I've tried to post comments on your other sites and it won't let me. I loved the poems though.
