October is Sarcastic Awareness Month

I got all excited about this until I found the description...

Sarcastic Awareness Month is (1) For those who realize they are sarcastic and want to get it under control; (2) for those who are sarcastic and want to get better at it; and (3) for those who are forced to live or work with people who are sarcastic. Sponsor: Sarcastics Anonymous.

I guess the first step is to admit you have a problem:)
