A true master is so confident in his prowess, that he has no need to display it unless under the direst of circumstances.

I bet I'm short listed aren't I? (seeing as I put you on my wonderful sig list)
If we were all to be asked what qualities are needed to produce wit, then I'm sure that saying you like somebody in your sig would score few points.

... if any.

Whoa! I'm a couple of days old on this forum, and I have lost a rep point already.

I'm just proud.

half the reps I get are worthless. The other half are usually ones that you would prefer to be worthless.

I was kidding.
I'm not into self-proclaimed wit or joining societies. I prefer to think of myself as a lone wolf if you will. That wasn't the best simile but it will do.

The lowest form of wit? Surely not a thing anybody would use to impress in such a thread as this...

Anyway. I don't see how that was sarcastic.

One thing that has puzzled me over the years...

If sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, what is the highest form of wit?

I've heard that puns are the lowest form of wit, not sarcasm...

Sarcasm is the simplest form of irony, which is an aspect of 'wit'.

*****y comments have to be understatedly cutting and clever - not outwardly malicious

i'm impressed by that, i loooove latinate words being used in an internet forum that come across sounding as if they're actually extracts from an 1870s courtroom transcript.
