Sarcasm - a function of the right frontal lobe?

[APA.org] This research paper looked at patients with different sites of brain damage, and studied their ability to understand sarcasm. The authors conclude that sarcasm is a function of the right frontal lobe. Patients with lesions in the frontal lobe and the right brain were unable to understand simple irony and sarcasm.
