    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.

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

    Which is ironic in itself I suppose…

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    I’m curious just how creative writing instructors in colleges and universities manage students who write about really disturbing factors and whom seem potentially dangerous to themselves and more? Are instructors privy to students’ mental health records? Do they let such learners get away with violent or disturbing composing in an effort NOT to mix too much difficulty? Do you feel proactive in trying to help these students? Do you undergo training to deal with problem students? Like a creative writing student in a university or college, I often see troubling stuff brought into workshops. I’m wanting to know what the profs think of all of this. Thanks to any answers!.
