    Link: The Three Common Uses of Irony (Comic) - Because everybody, yes everybody, needs to learn what irony really is. We`re looking at you, Alanis Morissette.

    Brilliant.

    And by the way, I like Alanis. But she`s a bytch! A dirty, dumb BYTCH!

    Yeah, people needs to finally get the difference between "Irony" and "Sarcasm"

    Alanis may have it wrong, but that`s still a good song.

    It`s ironic that people who correct other people on their use of the term irony have to be told the proper use of the term irony :-l

    Not really funny. And what`s the deal with the the word `ironical`? Is this an American thing? Surely the word `ironic` is the adjective, why add the suffix -al? People don`t say `poetical` now do they.
    But then I suppose `historical` is the same deal, and I think that`s ok. I`ll shut up now.

    I agree that this isn`t much of a comic, but it would be an excellent example of the "infographic" category.

    Oatmeal goes though all this trouble to make fun of grammar nazis, calling them virgins, when he seems to fit into that group as well.

    Irony?

    I have issues with the following things:

    1) People misspelling `grammar`.
    2) People using the word `ironic` to just mean `funny`.
    3) Your/you`re, there/their/they`re and its/it`s.

    Other than that, I`m not too much of a grammar nazi. Everyone makes mistakes occasionally.

    Alanis Moresette`s song is ironic in that none of the situations are particularly ironic.

    Ironic is to Irony what Moronic is to...Morony? Yet a situation that is Ironic is not Iron, though a Moronic situation usually involves a Moron.
