OF SARCASM

Paris, winter 1999

A middle aged European man asked me this question jokingly. "I read in the newspaper long time ago, Malaysians lived on trees before. Now, do you still do that?" I replied "Sadly no, but since we are so used to heights, now we live in skyscrapers".

I reciprocated a question. "Why your Paris is known as the perfume capital of the world?" He nodded, agreeing "Ahh, what kind of question you asked. Its because we French like to smell nice and beautiful". I replied, slowly but with clear voice. "Are you sure this is not because you want to cover your body odour with those perfumes? You rarely take any bath, yes?" He smiled and laugh, " Haa, I like you, you funny man".

He didnt even realize I was just being sarcastic.
