Ever notice how irony is hard to define without giving an example?  Well, here’s some help for the next time you need to explain what irony means to someone. 

The Titanic, like American banks, was too big to sink.

It seems that being attracted to women can lead to both school suspension and campaign suspension. 

Occupy SF has filed to open their own bank called “People’s Reserve Credit Union” – their goal statement has the words “redistribute that money” in it.

A day after “The Hill” had a story titled “Al Gore is Right About Climate Change”, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (yes, it’s real) shows that the ice buildup in the arctic is growing about 40% faster than the average growth rate between 1979 to 2000.  Now, I’m not good at math, but isn’t that more than Al Gore’s prediction of “no ice cap by 2007” prediction?

Nobody complained about the NBA players’ union sending high paying jobs overseas.

Miley Cyrus publically supports OWS.  The “anti-big business” movement is being supported by an individual that has had her face plastered on every piece of sellable junk manufactured by cheap laborers from overseas plants for the sole purpose of making as much profit as possible. 

Obama, the once famous senator who loved to vote “present” is about to campaign against a “do nothing” Congress.

I saw a person smoking while driving a Prius.

Obama is staunchly against water boarding, but has launched more predator missiles than any other President.  (I wonder if he would support drones armed with water balloons)

The super committee did exactly what their name implied – took what Congress does daily to a superior level (fail).

    Good point! What is the carbon footprint of a Tomahawk missile? (Other than eliminating the carbon footprint of the people on the receiving end!)

    What else can Miley Cyrus (this person is a star?) do to make herself more of a joke? Perhaps have a father who is a joke. (No wait, she’s already done that.)

    Awesome observations. You should have your own show.

    Great insight! Irony seems to be linked with hypocrisy. Plus, many of the examples you gave showed just how wrong some people can be.
