A real life example (though apparently unintentional): http://staefcraeft.blogspot.com/2010/01/accidental-sarcasm-on-focus-semantic.html
There was an ancient BC cartoon
X: Meet Smiley, master of sarcastic wit.
BC: Yeah? Say something sarcastic.
Smiley: Pleased to meet you.
But the remark is not itself sarcastic, though the joke depends on sarcasm as a general possibility.
