If you were around in the Nineties, you may remember a certain "IT-Girl" named Alanis Morissette, who warbled indecipherable songs about shit most of us couldn't care about if we tried.
She was the Volkswagon Beetle of female singer-songwriters - Compact, grotesque to look at, inefficient by design and created by Nazis.
Also, she looked like this:
How the hell Ryan Reynolds mounted that is beyond me, and I whack off to pictures of trees.
Before she was sent to the glue factory, Ms. Morissette released a track of auditory ear rape known as "Ironic." Purporting to describe a series of ironic events, the only actual ironic thing about the song was that none of the examples given were actually ironic. That's fuckwaffling irony right there.
That's like you clicking on this article expecting images of irony only to find picture after picture of cute kittens dressed in Ghostbusters outfits. (Which, granted, would be the greatest fucking site on the face of the planet.)
Anyway, unlike that cocknuckle of a song, here are a series of images that can actually be deemed as literal definitions of irony - Well, for the most part, anyway.
