Wry

Wry

<r-eye> <r-aye> or <rye>

sarcastic; ironic; dry humor;

making a joke in a not obvious way that sometimes might not be understood - usually making fun of someone.

He has a wry sense of humor. You never know when he is joking

Memory trick: Wry reminds of why?
Why make that joke?

Used at work:
Keep your wry sense of humor in check or you may lose the client.
