hotmatty It's a black fly in your Chardonnay It's a death row pardon two minutes too late It's like rain on your wedding day It's a free ride when you've already paid It's the good advice that you just didn't take A traffic jam when you're already late A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife It's meeting the man of my dreams And then meeting his beautiful wife 980819

duh... alanis (noun) A sort of humor, ridicule, or light sarcasm, which adopts a mode of speech the meaning of which is contrary to the literal sense of the words. 980831
jeff it's like badly written pop songs being played on once-decent radio stations. it's like a million and one Hanson fans flooding message boards with misspelled words and overuse of capitalization. actually, it's nothing like that. but that just came to mind. 980905
Stine there are different types of irony. there is the irony of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that's situational irony. then there's the irony of being on stage with frank sinatra and he calls you by name, but it's the wrong name. i guess that's situational irony too. 980905
caine it's like how everyone complains that the music scene is going down the tubes, when anyone who's anyone knows it's been like that ever since Dylan perfected the rock and roll song in the late sixties. 980905
caty I mean, how many times have you sat in a traffic jam and you hate it because you're late and like *pow* you go, "Wow, I'm here in this traffic jam and I hate it because I'm late, this is really ironic."

sabbie my friend julie introduced me to
my friend irony:
a glittery bowler hat with legs

my friend irony
used to follow us around all the time
and i remember that day
when we were sitting side by side
at that cafe
not quite touching
totally focused on each other
with things unsaid
and how
my friend irony
squished between us
and ordered a chocolate spider.
Jason Hart One level of irony and sarcasm just isn't enough anymore... when being sarcastic about something I can no longer use pure sarcasm, I can only be sarcastic about my use of sarcasm because the use of sarcasm itself has become so trite now that it has become the norm.

Society now is a parody of itself, and I only feel able to parody the parody. Lately its been worse, to me a parody of parody has now become commonplace and I am only able to mock my own meta-parody. This 3rd level of irony now threatens to fold back in upon itself and become trite.

There is an infinite chain of irony growing, and reality shrinks ever further in the distance.

i remember memorizing the definition of irony - justincase - ethan hawke came by and was looking for some one to shack up with
the two used in all the wrong places
for all the wrong reasons
by all the wrong faces
causing all the educated around
to want to do something
very wrong indeed

rain on your wedding day is fairly probable
ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife is ridiculous hyberbole. it's never gonna happen, unless you work in a spoon factory.

maybe the real irony in that alanis morisette song is that ironically nothing in the song is actually ironic.

Ambience Its kind of entertaining that in the song 'Ironic' there isnt one example of irony. Its all coincidence, or bad luck as stated above. 030607
a sweet girl agreed.

it's ironic that the song, 'ironic', contains no actual examples of irony at all.
misstree bends over for the Big Man it's how the Universe lets you know that it's It poking you in unconfortable places rather than just bad luck.

For lo, the Universe has a sense of humor, and a dark dark humor it is.

edwarddebozo you know that song "All of me"? It's good to sing it to someone who just doesn't understand irony. So you change the word and instaed sing: "Irony, why not use Irony, can't you see I don't mean what I'm saying..." 040301

superleni the birth and death of a person coinciding with both the birth and death of a planetary status are unexpected enough to be ironic ... we have two coincidences, which might just manage to become one irony.
