The perfect irony is that ironical isnt a word.

And that would've been irony if it wasn't a word. Sadly, you're wrong.

Ironically, the Dutch girl gets it right on this ironic topic. Ironical isn't a word.

ironic /aNB'rKnNk/ and ironical
adj
1 containing, characterized by or expressing irony.
2 said of a person: given to frequent use of irony.
ironically adverb.

my dictionary says "ironical" is a word

While it may actually be a word, the (MUCH) preferred term would, in fact, be "ironic".

you'd probably find it funny too if you're aware of what i'm referring to.

Hmmm. Actually, I'm fairly certain I do know (just didn't want to let on) ... and yes, I find that it's quite a knee-slapper. A little sad, too.

a little? come now, be completely honest.

all of the time and effort put into something like that speaks fucking volumes about a person. it's so ludicrous it's hilarious.

I find it ironic about who created the thread. It brings merry laughter to me. When will he see...

why's it ironic in regards to me making the thread?

I think it's called 'the pot calling the kettle black'. I find it quite ironic as well.

i would have to be fake for that to be true...and i'd laugh at the person who claims i am so.

You're thinking of the wrong person dude.

okay, all this mysteriousness has become confusing. some clarification is required.

Ashlyn
02-02-2005, 04:34 AM
but what if the person was not a real person at all?

acliff
02-02-2005, 05:41 AM
What if nothing is real?

Mags
02-02-2005, 06:59 AM
then everything would be hilarious...and ironic

Woah, everything being nothing, that is like so cool.

Ashlyn
02-02-2005, 09:21 AM
that is a totally original idea
how ironical

ryan
02-02-2005, 10:44 AM
what if we're all not real?
like in the matrix.

omg!

Okay, I have absolutely no clue what this thread is about, but since it has irony in the title, and I just recently found the *best* example of an ironic situation, I would like to share. Did anyone else hear about that Amish kid from Oregon or somewhere who got electricuted by a telephone wire?

[EDIT:] How the fuck do you spell electricuted?

electrocuted

Didn't you claim someone was a Russian spy?

acliff
03-02-2005, 06:18 AM
Kels, thats not ironic, thats just comically unlucky. Much like the contents of Alanis Morrissette's song 'ironic'. In fact the only ironic thing about that song is that its not ironic. Clever eh?

Kelsey
03-02-2005, 10:59 PM
It's ironic because the Amish don't use telephones or electricity.

No, that was Glare. :P

I know who the Amish are.
Lets not be so hasty with the usage of the word irony/ironic shall we?

e.g.
For instance, if I was having a party, and I thought my dad was going to come, and he didn't, that wouldn't be ironic. If, on the other hand, I was having a party and I didn't want my dad to come, and I spent three weeks working on a brilliant cover story for why he couldn't come, and then my sister accidentally blew my cover, so I had to invite him anyway, and then, on the way here, he got run over and died - that's ironic.

And on the topic of the song 'ironic', most British people think Alanis Morissette is American, and this goes towards the belief that Americans do not know irony. This is ironic on many levels because we think we're the more sophisticated, smart and witty, yet most don't know the difference between America and Canada, second because America sees Canada as such a tedious sleeping partner, and yet Canada is subversively sending idiots into the global marketplace with American accents. Of course, this is ironic. Canadian accents are not the same as American ones! So 3 examples of irony in places other than the song.

Lol. Yes, I never really thought of that. Another thing I thought was sort of ironic was some British responses to a really ironic film. Some of the British thought the movie was beautifully ironic and a few were talking about how Americans won't like this movie because we can't understand irony. Yet it was created by an American. But we do have more trouble understanding irony, sort of how we have trouble understanding there are other countries in this world (save the ones we are at war with...) For many New Yorkers, California is the other end of the Earth.
