Following this interesting thread, Can I use this phrase in a humorous way, for instance to mock somebody or to be sarcasm?

Hail to the rich people in this world! They can buy everything!

That's my best attempt to make an example. Does it sound unnatural?

As a native English speaker, I’d say yes.

This could be said sarcastically, and I’m sure people would still understand it. The only thing is you would have to be careful on how you say it: depending on the tone, it could be taken as serious.
