Word on the Street

Sargasm (sar-gaz-uhm) noun. Deriving far too much satisfaction from glibly berating another with sarcasm.

Usage example: Oh, thanks a lot for drinking my last beer! No, it’s my fault… if I wanted it for myself, I shouldn’t have put it in the fridge! Maybe you want my leftover pizza as well? No I don’t mind, I bought it for you to eat.

Word trivia: Everybody knows that sarcasm flies wild over the basketball court, but when a player takes it to another level, and really enjoy putting his opponent down for the verbal count. Then you have reach the level of sargasm. It’s not to be confused with trash talk were you are down right dirty in your vocabulary. But sargasm is still a nice way to get your defender to loose it.

Bugs Bunny, the inventor and master of sargasm.
