Literal translation would be easier to follow

Instead of translating the English as a negation, translating it "as if you knew how to make a fried egg!" (for example), it's still completely clear that the response is meant to imply that the other person does *not* know how to fry an egg. I don't think this even qualifies as sarcasm.
