Technically true right responses are funny because they’re so correct. When you’re right, you’re right. These people aren’t merely smart alecks, but smart people in general. How else could they see something so simple and yet so funny? Sarcasm is often associated with glibness or being dismissive, but every one of the people on this list wrote something that cut so close to the bone, all you can say is “yes, that’s quite literally it.” Replies that are technically the truth are pointing out what’s mostly correct but also hilariously wrong.
Obviously, it’s easier said than done. To say something obvious that no one saw coming is difficult. For starters, you have to actually pay attention to what other people are saying or writing. Yuck, am I right? I came on the internet to scream at strangers, not listen to the opinions of others and genuinely try to understand them. Thankfully, I don’t have to do any of that. These funny people did it for me and came up with simple yet brilliant retorts.
