Some genius put these two simple words together and created the epitome of contemporary satire. Shattering all mathematical theories (that 2 positives don’t make a negative) and defying grammatical and syntactical rules these two words make sarcasm fun and interesting. Don’t get me wrong and think I’m this evil little person who revels on such things. But when you think about it, you have to hand it to the person who came up with this. The subtlety and yet the profoundness of this usage is sheer genius.
In fact I a question posted on Help.com “Is “yeah, right” an expression of sarcasm or an idiom?”
And the answers although not definite, have been brought down to these three possibilities:
an idiom or
an idiom born of sarcasm
‘C’ really got me thinking, ‘an idiom born of sarcasm’… We actually have an idiom for sarcasm and it’s made of ‘yeah’ and ‘right’. Is that irony?
