Response to Real Japanese?

We obviously don't deal with sarcasm very well...
The basics of Kansai ben are easy enough, it's the occasional use of obscure slang and phrases that aren't so easily deciphered that I'm alluding to. And I say 'real Japanese' in the sense of standard Japanese. Once again, sarcasm. And personally, I think the Tokyo dialect is cooler. Maybe that comes from living in Tokyo- Kansai ben there is laughed at and looked at as being 'country'. It may be older but it's no longer dominant.
Keep the faith...
