    This popular expression can be used in several ways in reaction/response to someone's statement. For example, A. "I just won a ticket to the concert". B. "Are you serious?"(Are you joking?)

    Re: are you serious

    Another common use would be to show disagreement with another person:

    A: Bon Jovi are the best band in the world!
    B: Are you serious?

    A: This food tastes terrible.
    B: Are you serious?

    B disagrees with A.
