Sardonic (sar-don-ick) is not a particularly nice word, but it is a word that is good to know and fun to say. What it means is mocking (making fun of) or cynical (not believing in). Sardonic is generally used to describe one's sense of humor or smile.
To have a sardonic wit would be to make fun of things to make others laugh.
"Your uncle is so tall he has his own weather system."
This is a look you might get if you
make a sardonic comment!
This might make someone laugh, but it also might be at the expense of hurt feelings.
Sardonic humor can be funny, but it should be used carefully so as not to offend.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
