    Getting maried to avoid all the sexual diseases being spread and then getting herpes, the clap and crabs from your wife after the divorce.

    Ironic can be two things:

    1. the use of word meaning something other than their literal intention.

    2. a series of events that coincide in such a manner as to seemingly contradict each other.

    Also dramatic irony is when in a movie or play the audience knows what is going to happen to a character but the charater themsleves does not know what is comming up in the plot line.

    I find it ironic that all of us that come onto Yahoo answers have never met each other yet I notice most of us tend to watch each other's backs. Like when someone is Ignorant and disrespectful on an answer. I think it's ironic that I trust some of your answers more so then my friends. Unbiased opionions of situation with the clutter of one's background interfering. Neat! Ironic! '-)

    Meating the man of my dreams and then meeting his beautiful wife

    wait, thats from a song.....

    I think that people who work for the public and complain about how rude people can be, and then go shopping and are rude to the sales staff are very ironic


    Irony is an implied discrepancy between what is said and what is meant.

    Three kinds of irony:

    1. verbal irony is when an author says one thing and means something else.

    2. dramatic irony is when an audience perceives something that a character in the literature does not know.

    3. irony of situation is a discrepancy between the expected result and actual results.

    Does this clear up a few cobwebs I hope?

    It sure did to me!

    I cannot think of a concrete example to give you right now but I will let you know as soon as I do, okay buddy?

    Take it easy & MERRY XMAS!!!

    P.S. Maybe an example of an irony of situation would be when you cannot stand a certain person even though your partner/lover/spouse quite likes them for totally different reasons and you end up sitting at their table sharing your Xmas dinner with them!

    Or is that just damn unlucky?!?
