IronyMy friends and I are planning a trip to the beach this weekend (which we've been planning for forever), and a few moments after telling my boss that during our weekly meeting, I find out that our long-delayed backstage trip to Eat Bulaga would finally push through this Saturday.
"Rain on your wedding day? That's not ironic, it's just a pain in the hole."
"Ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife? That's not ironic either, that's just fucking weird. But of course, if you did have ten thousand spoons when all you needed was a knife, and then the next day you discovered that actually a spoon would have done the job just as well, now that would be ironic"
"A traffic jam when you're already late. Now that's definitely not ironic. Unless you were a town planner on your way to give a speech at a convention on easing traffic congestion."
"Now do you know what's ironic? A stupid, whiny Canadian bint writing a song called 'Ironic' which goes on to become a massive worldwide hit despite her not having the faintest idea what irony actually is. Now that's bleedin' ironic."
