Subject:        What are 'delicate wits?'

I have come across the phrases "delicate wits" and "delicate wit," but
have trouble ascertaining their meaning.  Sometimes I read a nuance of
compliment, but other times sarcasm.  Both may be good readings on my
part - or plain wrong.  I would appreciate any input or correction in
this matter.
