I didn't see a single story about rain on wedding days, free rides when one has already paid, or having 10,000 spoons when all someone needed was a knife.

An acquaintance of mine from my town had been a long time drinker with no intent to ever stop. Always drinking and driving. And we always told him alcoholism and drinking and driving were going to kill him one day. Luckily, he was pulled over by police and lost his license. He continued his drinking but gave up the driving, turning to a bicycle as his means of transportation. Having fallen off his bike a few times, once pretty badly, he decided he would stop drinking. He eventually put his faith in the Catholic Church, believing his faith in God and the Church would save him from a death deemed "imminent" by his doctor.
Very soon after his life change, on a dark night while bicycling his way home, he was riding on a main street and was passing a side street that split exactly between a Catholic Church on one side and a cemetary on the other. In that exact spot, he was hit and killed by a drunk driver who had turned out to be an alcoholic.

1. CSB. It is a true story.
2. Only one element in this story contains irony. Everything else is coincidence.

will we ever have an "ironic" tag that doesn't lead to a "What's the definition of ironic?" thread?

FirstNationalBastard: having 10,000 spoons when all someone needed was a knife.

Alanis Morrisette has obviously never been to the Philippines.

/pork and spoon!

gumpy: some of those were actually irony.

They were all irony, unless you're using an overly pedantic, hair-splitting definition of irony.

But weren't emoticons around in the 19th century? I remember reading an article from here about that.

"Breast cancer worse for men

According to a cancer survivor quoted in the article, men and women "have the same plumbing". So I hope you're doing what you can to avoid penile dysfunction, ladies."

So what you're saying is the author of this junk doesn't understand the different kinds of cancer? Neat.

I'm 98% convinced that my dad signed up for his health insurance AFTER figuring out he had breast cancer. Especially since it coincided with his giving up on anything resembling housework. When it's just you (the 20 something daughter/'roommate') and dad, and dad suddenly stops doing the normal activity, then signs up for health insurance, then a month or so later gets diagnosed, that's a handful of big red flags. And yeah, fundamentally, as I understand it, boobs have the same plumbing for both genders.
