    I looked it up. This thread is common at best. At its very best.

    Good enough?

    "Good enough" is in the eye of the beholder, unless you think I also made up the word "beholder".

    Does this qualify?

    From the movie Arthur:

    Arthur: I'm going to take a bath.
    Hobson: I'll alert the media.

    I'm sure there'll be people here whose little buttons are pressed by a movie quote.

    Remember google is everyones friend. 😉 Anyone can look up anything!!!

    Sardonic is an adjective describing dry, understated, and sort of mocking speech or writing—such as a clever remark that stings because it's so accurate. While sardonic comments seem slightly hostile, they are supposed to be witty and humorous rather than deeply hurtful.

    Speak for yourself. I have human friends and so do they. Give Google my regards anyway.
