Do you "egg" people on - on A2k?

I find I do this sometimes. Usually I don't mean to at first - I'm trying to be funny. It is just that most people don't appreciate (or more likely don't understand) my sense of humor. So I start writing something tongue in cheek, but some less than perceptive individual doesn't realize that a bit of what I am writing is an exaggeration. And this eggs them on. And of course I continue (because it is fun). I'm sure others have done it to me as well.

Ever do this? In error, like me? Do you fess up or continue the charade? Do you do this on purpose?

I've done it, certainly.

Whether I goad someone or not kinda depends on their initial response. If someone is confused, then generally I apologize and explain. If someone gets up on their high-horse, then my tendency is to spook the horse....

I was thinking about this - because I did it today without meaning to - I wrote something that was supposed to be an exaggeration and instead the person took it seriously so of course from their I kept pushing.

It depends on who it is if I fess up - I've had occassions where I wrote something I thought was funny and so obvious that you couldn't take me seriously and then some naivee but sweet person answered me seriously trying to guide me correctly. Because they were being thoughtful I had to let them know.

Then other cases I am a bit mean and say something like "duh" I was joking - those are usually resevered when some one responds to me hey bonehead how stupid are you.

My humor is dry and obscure, but most of the time people realize I am joking. The only A2Kers who have ever reacted the wrong way are Farmerman and Setanta. It doesn't really matter though, the purpose of my jokes is to make myself laugh.

@wandeljw,
Those two just don't understand you the way we do. What can you expect from a farmer and a dog?

So much gets lost in the translation from my five senses to internet text to the sensibilities (or lack thereof) of the reader that even I can look back at things I've written and depending on what mood I'm in see it in a different light than my initial intent.

I do often try and throw in some underlying punning / play on words and such and I do like anti-humor.

@wandeljw,
I have to better assess what I write from an "audience" perspective. Once I was kidding about Reyn(in which I used some poor word choices and he took such offense that he still ignores me almost a year later. I guess I wouldnt have said anything percieved to be mean spirited but it just didnt sound mean spirited from this end.
MOst of my purposeful egging is done wide open , but if I shoot somebody "en passant", I can only claim "my bad".
