Something ages ago people couldnt get the oddness of you need to know a few facts for the set up.
This was when I was in high school many years ago
Any hint of snow here they close school
I almost NEVER get injured.
On the one day it snows, and they don't close school "something about not expecting it to stick" I get injured and need to ice the injury. The nurses office is out of ice, and the cafeteria has none either. So I just went outside and got snow. I considered that a bit ironic at the time.

Either way this was the best episode because of what they could do with the devil robot's hands
I don't know why the writers were trying to drag into the ground the misconseption of the word "irony" they even got it wrong themselves.
Bender tells the robot devil that it was not ironic but just a coincidence that the devil had to give up his hands. Bender just wasn't paying attention I guess.
Irony is an inconsistency between what is expected to happen and what actually does happen, and that whole scene was leading us to believe that bender was going to be the one who gets his hands switched with fry, but the devil ends up being the one. That actually is ironic. I dunno maybe in 1000 years irony is only used in literary terms.
More than likely some dumb writer was just trying to make himself sound smart.
I'm fired aren't I?
