Sarcurious (adj.); Sarcuriosity (n.)

Have you ever found yourself confused by your own speech, unsure if you're being serious or sarcastic. Sarcuriosities are comments that are curiously and precipitously balanced on the line that separates the sincere and serious from the ironic and sarcastic. Often both meanings are real and relevant. Sarcuriosities are verbal dualities, kind of like the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle of language.

Jim's friends were often confused by the sarcurious nature of his comments.
