    Let's explore irony everyone, only the most intellectual can give good examples of irony, but it will be ironic if the least intellectual posters comment ironic statements of the word irony.

    I was just telling a friend about a trend I've noticed about irony/sarcasm lately. I've noticed a lot of people are not capable of grasping the concept of irony or sarcasm. Or maybe it's always been that way and it just seems more prevalent lately to me. Wouldn't that be ironic? Or would it?

    It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife. icon_confused.gif

    all sarcasm is ironic, but not all irony is sarcastic.

    I studied irony which helps in developing mental willpower and health, it also helps those with asperger's.

    Your opening invitation is a great example of irony.
    I don't consider myself a great intellectual but I use much irony in my writing.

    Speaking of aspergers, my assoicate at work has it and it's so very odd to talk to someone who will absolutely never hear sarcasm. He takes every sentence as literal.

    I don't use that word because I can't figure out what it means. I've heard that Alanis Morissete's song doesn't contain any examples of true irony.

    It's intelligent to know what you don't know.
    Most people here use words incorrectly... like RACISM.

    It is ironic that Hottjoe has a lot of clothing yet almost all of his pictures are of him naked. icon_twisted.gif

    I love positive irony.

    on that note, the difference between irony and coincidence is the will thats percieved before the connecting event is the opposite in the case of something being ironic.

    E.g. it is a coincidence that two brothers happen to be in the same remote bar on the other side of the world unpremeditated, however it is ironic if the two brother's went to the other side of the world in order to avoid each other.

    I used to work at a coffee shop, and I kept hearing my oh-so witty customers say, "hey, Joe, can I get a cup of hot Joe?" Ironically they always thought they were being original. My coworkers just started calling me Hotjoe.

    When I used to go to this club there was another guy called HotJoe. I was like, geez, I guess I'm not the only one. I had every reason to be jealous of Joepecs, who had great pecs. Then there was "Justin Timberlake," whose real name was Joe, but he has curly blond hair and a baby face. Most of the other Joe's were average. Hojoe was below average. He had black teeth.

    When I opened my account on RJ, I figured I'd resurrect my old nickname, but HotJoe was already taken. How many hot joes are there? More than average, that's for sure.

    And that is the story of how I came to spell hott with two t's. Now I see others do it. It's crazyy.

    My fathers name is Joe, so is my eldist brother and my best friend.

    I also loved the whole Joe the plumber, joe sixpacks and Joe Biden gag in 08.
