What's your favorite ironic moment on Futurama? I like when Bender exclaimed, "Fixed forever" after fixing the plasma fusion boiler, and it immediately explodes.

I love the part in 'I Second that Emotion' when Bender says "I'll make a cake you'll never forget!". In the next scene we see him reach for some rat poison while he's laughing, but it's nothing to do with the cake.

Don't you mean "the ironing is delicious?"

Anyway, you just can't beat the dramatic irony at the end of Jurassic Bark and Time Keeps on Slippin'.

I agree with Otis on Bender making that cake. Hilarious stuff. Also, Bender's realization that he has to be the new Santa in "A Tale of Two Santas".

I think it's kind of ironic how they say that robots don't have emotions yet Bender cries and stuff. :x  I'm not sure if that's really irony, but it's still kinda funny.

In the Ep. 'The Cyber House Rules', when Fry is saying all the 'abnormal' things about Zoidberg, The Professor, Hermes, and Amy..

Professor: '..and Fry, you have that brain thing'
Fry: 'i already did'

I think the whole luck of the fryrish episode story is irony. its irony because fry is angry that his brother changed his name to fry when really he named his son in honour of fry. anyone else think its irony?

All we know of Benders construction for certain is that he's 40% Zinc and 40% Titanium. ("Fry & The Slurm Factory," and "A Head in the Polls" respectivley) 'Course this doesn't fit with the ep title "The 30% Iron Chef."  confused

No biggie, Bender's worth at least 110% of other robots.

What about the irony of Zapp being one of the most decorated captains of the DOOP fleet?  Or the fact that Zapp and Kif should probably have each others jobs, but don't?  That's delicious ironing for ya.

Bender said in "The 30% Iron chef" that he is 30% iron, and in "Jurassic Bark" he is 40% dolomite.

150% composites, and all Bender, all the time.

Obviously somebody needs to pay more attention in English class and less in Klingon class.

Dramatic Irony: When the audience or a character knows something another character doesn't.
Situational Irony: When something happens that is contrary to normal expectations.
Verbal Irony: When a character says one thing but means another.

My favorite moment of irony is when Amy sold her hair to buy Hermes a set of combs, only to find that Hermes had sold his hair to buy a second set of combs for Zoidberg. So ironic...that should be in an O. Henry story or something.

I think that was a pretty cruel thing for Hermes to do. He knew Zoidy don't have hair, and then he go out an buy him combs! For Xmas!

OMG, the end of "Time Keeps on Slipping" was a little ironic, in a way.  Definitely unexpected... but it was just... whoa.

And yeah, a lot of the irony does seem to involve Bender.  He always contradicts himself.

But the joke was on him!  Because Zoidberg did have hair - HIS HAIR!

So what's the difference between situational irony and coincidence (or aberrance or anomalous-ness)?

I guess sometimes irony can be pretty ironic.

Another moment is in SP3K when Fry is careful not to het hit in the head by the second dorr, and then it closes sideways.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

Well, situational irony only really applies to the written work, whether book, play, or screenplay.  Not real life.

Anyway, I digress.  Nixon winning the election was situational irony.

Hmm... I'm always confused, which is weird, because I'm a pretty smart person (objectively speaking  laff )

Dramatic irony:  When the audience (reader, viewer) knows something that the characters of the literature/movie/tv show don't know. 
-For example: Reading a book about the Titanic.  We know it sinks - the characters don't.  That's dramatic irony.

verbal irony: when a person says one thing and means something else, basically same thing as sarcasm. Ex: "Well this is great." when referring to losing your wallet.

"real life" irony, aka irony of a situation, aka situational irony  When something happens: 1)seemingly "to spite" you
2)that is contrary (opposite) to what is "expected", in a way such that it is humorous, devestating, sad, or otherwize has some emotional effect.

These are not "Webster's" definitions, but I'm not Webster.  Or am I?  No, I'm not.

OK.
40%Titanium
+ 40%Zinc
+ 40%Dolomite
+ 30%iron
+ 30% iron chef
+ 0.03 Nickel
and some ozmium.

that comes to at least 180.03% maybe this is the composition of "duratinium" (mentioned on the bender toy packaging)
also how much is recycled beer cans? (from A big piece of garbage)

You have 30% too much iron there.

Maybe beer cans in the future is made from an alloy of 40% zinc, 30% iron, 40% dolomite, and small amounts of nickel and osmium.
