You can. Write down the stupid comments the ILs throw at you. Then, when you are relaxed and not stressed, write down witty, and sarcastic, responses. Feel free to post here for ideas. You will NOT be hard pressed for suggestions.

Then, practice these responses in front of a mirror - get your timing, gestures and intonations. Stand-up comics do this. You may go through several practice sessions until you get it the way you want. Then practice until it is second nature.

When the ILs throw out one of their stupid comments, you will feel comfortable enough to hit them with your response. Then laugh. Hard.
