  • It is sense of humor mainly relying upon sarcasm, timing, and wit. Can easily come across as seeming smart-assed, bitchy, or just plain difficult. People in the possession of such generally don't laugh at other's witticisms, even if they think they're funny. Dry, like a fine wine, and easy going but not everyone appreciates them. It is also known by other names like deadpan - a form of comic delivery in which humor is presented without a change in emotion or facial expression, usually speaking in a monotonous manner.
