    Haha, that The Republican newspaper truck is from Springfield Mass. Always fun to see random local stuff on the internet.

    arg, half are very funny and ironic, but half are funny and coincidental. Come one Alanis Morissette, learn your irony.

    Not all of these are ironic; some are just coincidental.

    Obligatory comment to point out that half of these are not actually ironic.

    Most are ironic but not all. For example the first two are not ironic at all.

    Which is ironic in itself I suppose…

    Whoever wrote this doesn’t understand what irony is! Try using the Reality Bites definition, not Alanis Morrissette’s!

    There are many different forms of irony. The first one is (sort of) figurative irony – while the words on the van mean “delivered to the home” the situation changes them to highlight the news van actually hitting the home (apparent vs. intended meaning). The second is situational irony in that the sign advertising fasteners has come unfastened (most of them are in this vein, such as the roofing company having no roof or the environmental notice about paper wasting paper, the freedom statue being caged, etc).

    There are a few that are just funny rather than ironic (or unclear) – but overall most of these are ironic in some sense and not in the Alanis Morisette sense of ‘bad luck/timing’ which isn’t irony.

    I don’t understand how an alligator with a Croc shoe in its mouth is ironic.

      It’s a crocodile holding a croc.

        So, it’s a croc. with a croc.

        It’s a gator. Crocs have a much narrower jaw

    The cage around the “Braveheart” statue was to to protect it from vandalism. Basically some people with a love for the real history of Scotland objected to a statue of Mel Gibson being placed in the car park of the Wallace monument.

    Forget about whether it’s actually ironic or not..everything in that vending machine is $0.25!

    Don’t see anything wrong with “Your the best teacher.” It don’t make no difference.

    • Patrick

      May 13, 2014 at 7:26 pm

      It’s ironic because the student should have used you’re, so perhaps the teacher is not the best after all.

    • Papa Gibbs

      May 30, 2014 at 6:42 am

      “Since you’re the best teacher, here’s your plaque”

    Now I finally have proof, that I’m not the only person to find the Tesco non-stick fry pan hilarious. Happened to me too last year. Thank you! =)

    Hey everyone, guess what? Everyone yawned when you started wittering about what technically constitues irony, and nobody was impressed when you recycled the ancient Alanis Morrissette gag. It’s a series of funny pictures, and that’s all it is.

    “Tough crowd!” (he says doing his best Rodney Dangerfield impersonation)
