    This is why the deadpan smiley needs more widespread recognition.

    Now if only they could make a sarcasm detector for analog situations.

    Well they should probably just whitelist The Onion, they've been cited (as well as other sites) as serious news articles when it couldn't be further from the truth concerning their intents. I'm reminded of the Asian country that reported their story on Kim Jong Un being voted the "Sexiest Man Alive" as factual news, that was just classic :)

    What the administration really needs is an irony detector.

    "The only pattern we can discern is a high proportion of posts ending with an odd punctuation pairing of a colon followed by a vertical bar. We assume it's terrorist speak for ' deathly serious.' we're sending in the drones."

    I like turtles.
    They would have to work out what it was first. I suggest starting with the song 'Ironic' by Alanis Morissette. It definitely lives up to it's title.

    That's obvious, because sarcasm is implying the opposite of a statement. That cannot be known without knowing the author personally. For example, if I said, "mmm, that mustard looks delicious.", everyone who doesn't know me would expect that to be the truth. Everyone who knows me would know that I was kidding.
