Comic Kunal Kamra Says His Shows Cancelled, Adds “How To” Sarcasm

Popular comedian Kunal Kamra’s shows scheduled for the next 20 days in Bangalore have been cancelled, he informed in a Tweet from his official account. In a sarcastic post announcing the news on the microblogging site, he said the official reason for the sudden move was the denial of permission to seat 45 people at the venue, which he claims can accommodate more than that number. The other reason, he said, was threats made to the organisers that the venue would be shut down if he was ever to perform there. It is not clear yet who made these threats. “I guess this is also part of the Covid protocol and new guidelines. I suppose I am seen as a variant of the virus now,” he said.

OKC Philharmonic brings whimsy, beauty to performance

A recent Oklahoma City Philharmonic concert, led by Alexander Mickelthwate, delivered an exciting, playful program of French and Russian works.

Facebook Seller Encounters Entitled Cheapskate & Trolls Her Hard

Who knew that unloading $35 worth of Victoria's Secret gear could result in such a roller coaster ride? Certainly not this poor soul. This Facebook seller thought she had a buyer - and then the cheap college student basically admitted she'd rather go out with her friends than pick up the clothes - just after asking that the seller offer her a payment plan. We understand it's tough to to pay your way through school, but this is clearly a case of shitty priorities than anything else. The frustrated seller seemed to agree, and took the opportunity to sarcastically offer to give the college princess the clothing for free. Unfortunately, stupid people don't really pick up on sarcasm, and things really devolve from there.

Why machine-learning chatbots find it difficult to respond to idioms, metaphors, rhetorical questions, sarcasm

Unlike most humans, AI chatbots struggle to respond appropriately in text-based conversations when faced with idioms, metaphors, rhetorical questions, and sarcasm. Small talk can be difficult for machines. Although language models can write sentences that are grammatically correct, they aren’t very good at coping with subtle nuances in communication. Humans have much more experience in social interactions, and use all sorts of cues from facial expressions and vocal tones to body language to understand intent. Chatbots, however, have limited contextual knowledge and relationships between words are reduced to numbers and mathematical operations.
