Ironic sarcasm or sarcastic irony

Here are a couple of definitions from Dictionary.com:

Sarcasm: 1. harsh or bitter derision or irony. 2. a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark

Irony: 1. The use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning. 2 Incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs.


(Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: Nikkor 17-55mm @ 18mm. Exposure: 1/250th sec. @ f/5.6. ISO: 200)

I wonder, was this graffiti-covered sign at the Stockton Skate Park ironic or sarcastic or both?
