Resolved questions
Is there any difference between "Thanks for nothing!" and "Thank you very much, I'm sure!" ?

I know that both phrases are meant humourously and are used ironically in non-serious situations. They could be translated with "Danke für die Blumen!" in German.

I wonder if there is any difference in the meaning of these two phrases?

Any advice is highly appreciated, thanks in advance. :)

    Well, the second phrase could be serious. The first is irony.

    Both are sarcastic (and meant to offend)!
