Well... I guess that's true if things turn out ironically. Of course by that logic you could argue that "A situation" is ironic because it can happen to be ironic.

Your English teacher sounds like a real idiot.

And isn't it ironic - don't you think
A little too ironic - and yeah I really do think

Hi aDam,

What it is yo? Just adding some traffic to your forum :)

Im listening to LedZeppelin here at 3:06 am. Funny how good music never really sounds old.

I hope youre workin' on that beef for next month! Dont slacken off now eh.

Take care Man,


PS What did the kid say when he got the comb he wanted for Christmas.
Answer: III never "part" with it.

Old jokes are pretty awesome too.

Hey Jon. How's it going?

Hehe... never heard that one. That sort of a good trick if you're never going to use the comb but if you use it once and actually part your hair with it then you're stuck never abandoning it since one of those two meanings have to be true... yeah.

Anyway I haven't started actually writting the beef yet since we're still in Nov. but I've got something in mind. I think it would flesh out betteras December progresses and we get hard into the holiday season since it's sort of a topical thing. I may just see where the month takes me.

And man does it ever piss me off when people don't use "ironic" properly. I mean good examples of irony don't often come up in everyday life but people still feel this carnal need to say things are ironic so that stupid people who don't know what irony mean will be all impressed... problem is anyone who actually knows what it means will think it sounds stupid. I wonder if most of these posers actually think what they're saying is right or if it's just a ruse.

There's this movie "Teaching Ms. Tingle" and this whole sub plot is that Katie Holmes doesn't get irony. In the end there's some stupid thing that's not ironic and she says it is and the teacher's all "you finally understand" but I can't remember what it was. Kevin Williamson sucks ass.

I got that pop up a bunch more times yesterday and not at all at the same sites. Seems like it's the new hidden camera popup. I wonder if everyone else sees the irony.

Mirorzz... the very concept of a CD which makes your monitor a camera just hurts my brain.

I believe the concept of a money order to be quite ironic. You can't send cash in the mail or postal workers will steal it so you get a money order and pay out the ass to the post office so that they won't steal your own money.

Good point. If you spot the error you could do without the tool.

More ironic fun: This morning on the bus I was playing Yoshi's Island. I wasn't listening to the game with my earphones as I was listening to my discman which was playing the soundtrack to the game Kingdom Hearts.
