Irony is a word that is misused a lot. Ever since the movie Reality Bites, which had a scene specifically about the definition of irony, I've made a point to be clear what is and isn't irony. This gets me in trouble with people, especially those who like Alanis Morrisette and the song "Ironic", which unfortunately talks about a lot of things that are not ironic. In that way the song is actually ironic. It happened again this morning, I started pestering somebody about their incorrect use of the word irony and they used the song as proof that they were correct. Thankfully, comedy came to the rescue. ...

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
A friend showed me this video shortly after the incident this morning.
