Alanis Morisette`s song is ironic because she thinks that she sounds good.

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.

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

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.

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?

He makes bank making fun of grammer nazis. Most grammer nazis do not make money from being douche bags.

I would say about a couple seeming more like sarcasm and poetic justice, but I have giant chinchilla to high-five.

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

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.

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
