    What is this about? Another "joke"? Please tell me what to do

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?


    What is this about? Another "joke"? Please tell me what to do. I want to feel embarrassed again!

    (It is written in a sarcastic tone.)


    Thanks!

    I'd say the original version is also acceptable. You could emphasize the sarcasm by writing I really want to feel embarrassed again!
