    i think making a post about irony and then being told you have mis-used the word is ironic!

    That's not ironic.

    If you had actually snapped Jazz in two at waist, by accident, while playing with it and Megatron, THAT would've been ironic.

    Well, I like Transformers and there is a bar down the street called Tracks Bar & Grill.
    And then there is a guy I work with who drives a red Volkswagen Eurovan that looks just like G1 Ironhides Alt. mode.
    Isn't that ironic?

    No. Too far-fetched, IMO.

    If he drove a blue Corvette with flame paintjob on the bonnet, that would be ironic.

    No, that wouldn't be ironic either. If you'd have been playing with Jazz and Megatron and suddenly MEGATRON snapped at the waist, THAT would be ironic.

    Some folks really don't understand irony. I blame Alanis Morissette. Coincidence and irony are not the same thing.

    I blame it on "ironic" being easier to spell and sounding cooler. :p

    Nothing in the song "Ironic" is inherently ironic, which in itself is somewhat ironic.

    For those who want to read up on the assorted types of irony, and where it is separate from incongruity and simple coincidence, try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irony

    My Toys R Us had ten thousand protoforms when all I needed was a Bumblebee.

    Isn't that ironic?

    Don't ya think?
