I'm trying to understand irony better...

For examples of irony you could check, for example, ironyexamples.com. )))

The Robot Devil discusses irony heavily in the episode (sometimes erroneously). But that's pretty flimsy.  yeahman really didn't need to create an account and start a thread about it.

I know, I know: Bender: The use of words expressing something other than their literal intention. Now that is "irony".

Pretty flimsy indeed
