Christmas is supposed to be a season of doing for others. Getting so caught up in getting everything done that you neglect people sorta defeats the purpose, amirite?

Gotta love those few trolls who like to log out just to down-vote an opinion. Remember, aforementioned trolls: You might be counted in the "No Ways," but when someone clicks the button to see "Who Disagreed," you are just a "Nobody :)"

The only ironic thing about Alanis Morisette's song "Ironic" is that all the examples held up as being ironic aren't really ironic.
@Kira Yep, that one line is a form of irony. The main examples the song holds up (rain on your wedding day, green light...

I think miss Alanis, or whomever wrote the thing must have been viewing oppositional cliche's as being ironic, not in the verbal sense, but situationally.

I'm not sure what you would actually CALL IT, but man with plane phobia crashing on his first (and last) flight is easy to misconstrue as irony. Although it is not verbally contradictive to actual sentiment, it was probably ironic that all the people who convinced him he would "be fine" or there was "nothing to worry about," before he took the flight were "ironically" incorrect.

I just want to acknowledge that you are right about most of the songs examples are not true forms of irony, which in it's self makes it ironic ;D.

Do any of our amirite scholars know the definitive word for situations or circumstances that are opposite of a desired outcome? (I.e. "isn't it _(insert appropriate word here)_")

Hang up your phone and tend to your gas-station/convenience store, amirite?
@fuzala stop accidentally hanging people so you can tend to the rabbits

I'm not sure how to say this without seeming racist ( Oh well, here goes ), but there are certain private, owner-operated filling stations (usually oriental and middle-eastern), and EVERY time I stop in, they are talking on the phone, and don't even bother to hold the call while they assist the customer.

I seriously thought, directly before posting my opinion, that this dude could use a head-set for Christmas, but then immediately thought after that he SHOULD put down the phone while assisting customers!

THEN I wondered "what on earth is he even talking about," that any given day, seven times a week, I can stop by and he is on the phone. There is no one person on this earth that I have THAT much to say to.

Even if you are a fan of the skinny jean, it will be nice when there is more of a variety on the clothing rack when you're shopping for jeans, amirite?
@Where are you shopping that you can only find skinny jeans?

Debs, Burlington, and Ross is were I usually shop for clothes.

The past few times I went to buy jeans, I was only able to find skinny jeans.

skinny jeans are cute if you wear them right, but they son't go well with all shoes.

I miss the good, ol' fashioned boot-cut and flare jeans. Now if you find flares their practically bell-bottoms.

First-world problems, I know -.-

You don't condone the actions of criminals but a lot of the time you understand why they did what they did, amirite?
Sometimes a post is so drop dead awesome that you question if it's a re-post/taken from another site and when it's not you're astonished by how fantastic the poster is, amirite?

Nice to be noticed ;p

Like when people steal food to feed their families..

@Frank_n_Furter No it's not.

"When the plane crashed down he thought, "we'll isn't this nice" ."

Human language used to express the opposite of ones sentiment- irony.

Considering how destructive it is, tsunami is a very pretty and soft sounding name for what it describes.

It's cause you're saying it with the wrong inflections. "tSu-NAh-mEH!".

That's a bit more vicious.

A man afraid to fly dying on his first flight is ironic.

If you can't afford to give your waiter or waitress a decent tip that's at least 10% of your total, then you really can't afford to dine out. Don't go to a fancy restaurant, pop $100 on dinner, and then cheese the waitress with a lousy $2 tip.
The White Stripes are better than The Black Keys, amirite?

Your closet doesn't have doors, it has curtains, amirite?

Wow- it's like you're reading my mind- although I think most people will have doors.

Funny how the Texans are getting their asses kicked, amirite?
