TFA fails to mention the most important information:

/were there any beers injured?
//we need a tragedy tag

INCOMING IRONIC TAG shiatSTORM!

Normally, I would agree that this is indeed ironic. However, irony is when the opposite of the expected outcome happens & since this happened in Wisconsin, I'm afraid I can't go for that. No can do.

He probably drank too much, drove, fell asleep, hit the beer truck shattering all his hops and dreams.

I think submitters do this intentionally, label coincidental things as ironic, use "beg the question" incorrectly, that sort of thing, as a way to troll Fark, not because they don't actually know the difference.

Bullseye.

I barley even caught it the first time. Well-played.

I agree.

It would be ironic if a drunk driver crashed into a truck full of sobriety. Yeah...

What's the opposite of Irish?

Except, not really. For an old drunkard to crash into a beer truck is simply a hilarious coincidence.
This would be ironic if, for instance, the driver were a member of MADD.

I used to be a beer truck driver. My now wife and I were on the way to get our marriage license. We were meeting at the courthouse, because I was working. She had called to see where I was as she was driving, and all of a sudden she screamed bloody murder. I thought she had wrecked, but she regained her composure, and told me to keep driving, that I would find her shortly. Got to her, parked the truck, and was amazed at how lucky she had been. A drunk driver had swerved into the left lane ahead of her, nearly hitting the tractor trailer in the left lane. He had swerved to avoid the drunk, and clipped the guard rail, tearing his landing gear crank handle off of his trailer. It had bounced off the road, into the middle of my wife's windshield. She had about 3 feet of steel handle hung up on the roof of her car, through what was left of the windshield, and into her backseat, about 2 inches to the right of her shoulder.
Anyway, that's how we ended up riding to the courthouse for our marriage license in a Miller truck that said "Super Duper Ready To Drink" down the side of it.

It would be img1.fark.net if only the O'Doul's were damaged; it would be Ironic if the driver himself were drunk.

/drunk hitting a beer trunk =/= ironic though

Drunk crashing into anything wouldn't be ironic. Maybe "citizen tailing drunk driver crashes while distractedly talking on their cell phone to police" or something.
 
2012-04-11 04:26:33 AM

Di Atribe: I'm afraid I can't go for that. No can do.


Thanks to watching this earlier today, I see what you did there. Cee-lo killed it.

Drunk driver hitting beer truck, barely a story.

Beer truck hitting drunk driver, now that would be a story.

Yeah, grammer trolls are loosers. But even though their transparent, its the principal that matters.

I got hit by a beer truck on the Long Island Expressway, mangling the back-left quarterpanel of my '86 T-Bird Turbo Coupe.

When will you white people realize you need to lay off the pabst blue ribbon!

Now look at the camera and say "I'm white trash and I'm in trouble!"

This would be ironic if, for instance, the driver were a member of MADD.


So.... for it to be ironic, a drunk person would have to hit some icon of sobriety? I can buy that. However, I stand by my assertion that this cannot be the opposite of what is expected to happen since it involved a drunk guy & Wisconsin, regardless of what he ran into.

The police report indicates alcohol was involved.

Di Atribe: So.... for it to be ironic, a drunk person would have to hit some icon of sobriety?


No, that by itself doesn't seem terribly unexpected... in fact that's more just a reinforcement of MADD's point.
I mean that it would be ironic if the drunk driver who ran into the beer truck was a MADD member.

Although a MADD member driving a beer truck would be ironic by itself, I suppose.
