Rfv-sense: sarcastic: a person who has very poor spying skills. --SusiCantel (talk) 19:35, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Delete. Any verification would be of an ironic use of the first sense, which can be done with any name of a person having a known skill. For example, if you play basketball and you make a good shot, someone might say that you looked like Michael Jordan; if you miss the same shot badly, the person commenting could say the same thing sarcastically. bd2412 T 19:47, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree. Compare Sherlock Holmes: there is a sense for someone with great powers of observation and deduction, but no opposite sense, though the general-purpose device of sarcasm means that this flattering sense can be used sarcastically (just as "genius" can be used sarcastically to mean "idiot"). Same with Einstein. Equinox 19:49, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
Delete Pretty much anything can be used sarcastically. Do we need "Big: (sarcastic) small" or "Good: (sarcastic) bad"? Smurrayinchester (talk) 11:31, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
(Incidentally, 007 also has the same (sarcastic) sense, which should also probably be included in this RFD) Smurrayinchester (talk) 11:34, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
