Now that's what I call networking!

"I have got a lot of money. Can you get my wife killed?"

I'm kinda short on time here. Could you please quit beating around the bush and get to the point?

He was just a social drinker but social every night
He enjoyed a pint or two or three or four
She was just a silent thinker, silent every night
He'd enjoy the thought of killing her before
Well he was very rarely drunk but very rarely sober
And he didn't think the problem was his drink
But he only knew his problem when he knocked her over
And when the rotting flesh began to stink
Cry freedom for the woman in the wall
Cry freedom for she has no voice at all
I hear her cry all day, all night
I hear her voice from deep within the wall
Made a cross from knitting needles
Made a grave from hoover bags
Especially for the woman in the wall
She'd knitted him a jumper with dominoes on
So he wore it everyday in every week
Pretended to himself that she hadn't really gone
Pretended that he thought he beard her speak
Then at last it seemed that he was really winning
He felt that he had some sort of grip
But all of his new life was sent a-spinning
When the rotting wall began to drip

actually it doesn't sound that ironic to me, where's the "predictable" tag? oh, maybe that's just obvious.
2003-05-16 07:21:55 PM  
ooh, this is a classic!

**Mr Foster said a text message was found on his mobile phone which was addressed to Miss Taylor. It said: "End of the road. Me got gun now. Me finish unfinished business."**

For an English guy, his English is surprisingly poor.

"End of the road. Me got gun now. Me finish unfinished business."

So, they think the best solution for this guy is to put him in a room with a bunch of other guys who have a hard time not hitting women in the first place...

"It is clear his actions were misguided. It is clear part of the problems are perhaps his low IQ and something of an obsessive personality."

Oh, really, Master Of The Obvious?

Then again, a woman who looks at a possessive tard 12 years younger than her and says, "Yep, gotta have me some of that" might have some problems as well.

"End of the road. Hulk got gun now. Hulk finish unfinished business."

Sort of like picking up chicks at a sex-a-holics anonymous meeting, eh?

No. Ironic would be if me met some biatch at the group called Alanis and it rained on their wedding day. The she caved his head in for not making her a sammich. This is 'obvious'.
2003-05-16 08:47:07 PM  
Believe it or not, this is actually a valid use of the ironic tag
2003-05-16 08:50:15 PM  
Now that's "Ironic".
2003-05-16 08:57:46 PM  
Since you all are talking about irony it reminds me of a great line from the movie con-air; "DEFINE IRONY: A bunch of guys singing in a plane made famous by the band who died in a plane crash"

--a probably farked up the line..been awhile since I seen the movie!
2003-05-16 08:59:18 PM  
No, FeuerFrei, that's just an example of the famous British talent for understatement. If I were the possessive tard in question, I'd get me a less sarcastic lawyer--with defending attornies like this, who needs a prosecutor?

What's a 38 year-old guy doing with some 50 year-old woman?
Come on, man. I know you're psychotic but I bet you could get younger than that.
2003-05-16 09:59:08 PM  
I saw this movie a while ago.

Callowparadigm: Some older women are really good, if you know what I mean, nudge nudge, wink wink.
2003-05-16 10:20:46 PM  
What no "i'd hit it"?? It'd be relevant here!
2003-05-16 10:47:36 PM  
That's not self-help, that's help!
2003-05-16 10:50:19 PM  
Another abuse of the [image from too old to be available] tag.

I'm starting a petition to remove the "ironic" tag.

Who's up for signing?
2003-05-17 02:06:47 PM  
I think anybody who selects "Ironic" should get a popup with the proper difinition of Ironic. And they shuold have to Clic "I AGREE" to a paragraph saying that if it isnt ironic they cant post anymore.
2003-05-17 03:06:36 PM  
: Of course we know that everyone reads pop-up warnings when they sign up for something. Don't they?

Anyway, I would agree with ironic since he was sent to the class to supposedly be less likely to beat his girlfriend but uses the oppurtunity to find people to kill her. How is an action opposite of what is expected not ironic?
2003-05-17 03:07:46 PM  
I like everything I say to be in bold text. Makes me feel like more of a man.

I find it ironic that the ironic police can't agree on what's ironic.
