Improper use of the 'ironic' tag commments in 5...4...3...2...
2003-09-09 11:18:53 AM  
And this is ironic how?
2003-09-09 11:35:06 AM  
The president said he was going to show up on time. His staff aren't even included in this.

You need an initiative to show up on time for work? Am I the only one who thinks that is a given?
2003-09-09 01:27:52 PM  
It *is* ironic. Though it would be more ironic if his lateness was due to his driver being late to work.
2003-09-09 01:28:27 PM  
I think it's somewhat ironic that the the president of a third world nation wracked by poverty is starting an initiative to show up on time for work.

Wait a sec...I think I mean pathetic, not ironic...
2003-09-09 01:29:14 PM  
I don't know if it's ironic, but it is damn funny.
2003-09-09 01:30:00 PM  
*walks in late*

What did I miss?
2003-09-09 01:30:24 PM  
what's ironic here is the poster's fear of apostrophes.

Just because they're often used incorrectly, doesn't mean you can't use them at all.

(president's initiantive, not presidents)

Ironic. In Memphis, this phenomena is called C.P.T.
2003-09-09 01:33:16 PM  
an entire country of late people eh, I would have thought it would be Mexico.
2003-09-09 01:33:29 PM  
It's like ray-ee-ain on your wedding day.
2003-09-09 01:34:40 PM  
like a free ride, when your already late?
2003-09-09 01:35:32 PM  
I am late for work every day and when I finally do get here, my first objective is to get farked. This is how we do it in the only first world nation. Blah!
2003-09-09 01:36:14 PM  
Old and busted: complaining about misuse of the Ironic tag
New hotness: not complaining about misuse of the Ironic tag.

It's like ray-ee-ain on a rainy day
2003-09-09 01:36:57 PM  
crossbuster: Is that comma necessary, or, for that matter, are these? ;-)

/out of my league really

Their I go again...


As per my agreement with Tournypro3PO, my sole allowable comment on the proper use of a Mariah Carey hot butt loving tag is as follows: :-/

However, if it was the minister for iron and steel, it would've been....*Iron-ic*

I guess it's like the Swaziland King asking all teenage girls to remain virgins, then going on to marry one of them.
2003-09-09 01:48:06 PM  
ya' think?

/hates himself for quoting songs he hates.

Damn you all for putting Alanis Morissette in my head!

/looking for cyanide pill

"Never put off until tomorrow that which you can put off until the day after tomorrow."

2003-09-09 01:54:51 PM  
sorry dish, I just ate the last of mine hoping for redemption.
2003-09-09 02:00:33 PM  
Maybe this thread can turn into how all the stuff Alanis Morissette talks about in that song isn't really ironic... just bad luck.

Rain on wedding day
Good advice you don't take
Traffic jam when you're already late

It's like becoming a millionaire performing songs you didn't write because you are a talentless asshat?
2003-09-09 02:06:41 PM  
don't get me started on that song and how stupid the lyrics are. If you are going to base a song on one word, it helps to know what it means.
2003-09-09 02:08:32 PM  
was that photoshopped? cos she actually looks hot in that picture. I need to photoshop my ugly ass.
2003-09-09 02:09:34 PM  
Is writing a song about irony, but then misinterpreting the word "irony," ironic or just jackassed?
2003-09-09 02:10:45 PM  
I vote "jackassed"
2003-09-09 02:12:27 PM  
Irony is a diabetic getting run over by a truck full of insulin.

/looking for cyanide pill

A jagged little cyanide pill?
2003-09-09 02:17:17 PM  
C'mon, gfm! It was almost gone!

/now looking for faster solution
2003-09-09 02:18:43 PM  
gfm, you are cruel. How do you sleep at night?

/thank you India

Man, this thread was totally threadjacked, dontcha think?
2003-09-09 02:25:16 PM  
An entire country of late people. I am sure that my girlfriend must be the farking Empress of this mystical land.
2003-09-09 02:28:40 PM  
/thank you SI-LENCE!

as opposed to apostrophilia.
2003-09-09 02:42:59 PM  
What third world idiots!
2003-09-09 02:44:54 PM  
Why do you need to be on time when your only purpose as president is to steal as much as possible?

Go Sixto!

Lookit what's on TotalFark now, with an "Ironic" tag and this thread linked:

In a shocking development,farker uses "Ironic" tag correctly.Instead of being congratulated, poster is ridiculed by asshats with little to no grasp of the English language!

Fully red-lighted, so there.
2003-09-09 03:08:10 PM  
I guess that $5 dollars for TotalFark doesn't buy you a sense of humor...
2003-09-09 03:12:59 PM  
... nothing some good pot won't fix, right ClipJoint?

The beauty of Central America is that nothing is ever urgent. American's want everything done instantly. We're incredibly impatient. The slower pace in CA is an extremely nice experience.
2003-09-09 05:45:53 PM  
I don't think any of you know what irony really is...
2003-09-09 06:00:59 PM  
That would be ironic, pigfarker.
2003-09-09 06:05:12 PM  
Irony is a diabetic getting run over by a truck full of insulin.

Funny! I laughed out loud (for the first time this crappy day). I picture it as a tanker, milk truck sort of thing.

I'll have to vote for "is ironic" on this article/headline. Good job, poster.
