Re: Sarcasm a sign of intelligence?
I think it's a reflection of character more than a sign of intelligence, especially since it's hard enough to measure intelligence (i.e speaking any kind of coherent language is a sign of intelligence, completing mundane tasks around the house ect..). You need to have a decent amount of wit to pull off sarcasm effectively, but it doesn't necessarily make you smarter than the guy that doesn't use it. The guy could have a piss poor sense for detecting irony and packaging it into a expression, but he could also be a genius at Computer Hacking.
