Ironing Out Irony

Postby Prozac » Wed Aug 31, 2022 6:27 pm

    

What is irony? Contrary to conventional wisdom and overall community sentiment ... Alanis Morissette's infamous
song, rain on your wedding day isn't ironic - it's just plain bad luck. Irony these days has been confusing and mis-
leading to a lot of people, it is high time that we will give the true version and set the record straight once and for all.

The definition of irony: is a situation that is strange or funny because things happen in a way that seems the opposite
of what you expected. This thread was made to give everybody a crash course of sort of what irony is all about. And
at the end of the discussion, everybody is expected to identify irony like you "know-it-when-you-see-it" type thing.

When it comes to finding examples of irony, (including - phrases or situations) life proves stranger (and funnier) than
fiction. To say we live in an ironic age and certainly in an ironic culture - is a truism. Anybody can interpret it differently
and it can sometimes be a good or bad thing. These ironic examples will raise anyone's eyebrows and bring a laugh or two.

So where do we start? You might as well start at home within the family circle. As we all know, family relationships can
be convoluted drama as conflict can happen when family members have different views or beliefs that clash. By the way,
these are real-life situations ... it can happen to anybody to children ... as well as parents. Here are some examples:

1. It is ironic that we have children who want to be wealthy and want a good life. The problem is the guy doesn't want
to work. And if he has money he spends it only for himself.

2. It is ironic that children demand a lot from their parents. He wants his parents to cooperate with whatever plans he has
but when it is time for the parents to demand the same cooperation he demanded from them ... he can't deliver.

3. It is ironic that some children are inattentive and ignore their parent's needs. Just like my neighbor who found the love
and care they needed from a nun ... and they were the first to voice out their concern: "What will the people think of us?"
they asked.

4. It is ironic that some children who were used to having a"free this ... and a free that" (c/o their parents of course) ... can
be heartless especially when the freebies are dwindling and coming far between. And they have the gall to point that out.

5. It is ironic that a parent at the prime of their life can just leave his original family like that and start building a second
family. In the end ... a dramatic twist happens and he got sick ... the second family was unable to take care of him and his
last option was to go back to the family he disowned.

6. It is also ironic that some parents think life is better in America. America represents new hope and a new opportunity.
Arriving in America however made them realize the opportunity they were expecting was not there.

If you have an example of life ironies we encourage you to share and make your own. Jot a line or two and make this thread
discussion lively and interesting. Thank you.

More Ironies:

1. A man who slept and has been chasing skirts all his life decided he wants a virgin wife.
2. A woman who kept painting the town red and slept with any man at every opportunity wants an honest
husband.
3. A marriage counselor filing for a divorce.
4. A priest coming from a broken family gives the best homily.
5. Once you're ill, you looked back at how you take your health for granted

More paradoxes of life

1. Quiapo Church is an irony - the poor beg outside and the rich begs inside.
2. Socmed is an irony - This is where people write their masterpieces and show care and concern for others.
Some entertain by showing their dancing skills in Tiktok. And they are the very same people who have not lift
a finger attending to his mom on a verge of depression, or a brother who is into drugs.
3. Life is an irony. We want to live a long life ... but we made it short when you go into vices like drinking,
smoking, or drugs.
4. Beauty contest is an irony. All the beautiful girls wanted is to improve their personality, and show the world
what they got and what they're made of. In the process, some of them become vain, materialistic, self-absorbed
egomaniac showing an excessively high opinion of one's appearance, abilities, or worth.
5. Pandemic is an irony. My neighbor sold his house in the countryside until the pandemic hits. It could have
the most ideal place to live under the circumstances.

MOST OF ALL YOUR IRONIES THAT YOU OBSERVE IN YOUR WHOLE LIFE ARE ACCEPTABLE IN THE SOCITIES NOWADAYS AS LONG AS YOU DON'T STEAL, HURT OR KILL AND PUT THE NAME OF GOD IN VAIN PER CATHOLIC CHURCHES TEACHINGS AND ALL OTHER LEGAL OR RELIGIOUS LAWS.

All life seeks is more comfort, security, and pleasure, but life itself is fraught with just the opposite of these, so when
one sees these things, it seems paradoxical, therefore an irony!

My friends after seeing this thread wanted to know about living people and the irony of their life.

1. Ilhan Omar's life (a US congressman from Somalia) is an irony. She once said under Sharia Law in Somalia, she was
forced to keep her mouth shut. She fled Somalia for fear of persecution. In the USA, she became a Congresswoman from
Minnesota but under her finicky ideas the US is still bad and she wants to change America for the better.

"And here I am free in America free to talk trash about this country in hopes that I can change it to a country where
I am forced to keep my mouth shut."

2. William Eno's life ( the “Father of Traffic Safety” and invented the stop sign, crosswalk, traffic circle, one-way street,
and taxi stand) is an irony. He can be a model of paradoxes - because the man doesn't know how to drive and he never
got the chance to experience and saw the benefit of his own invention.

3. James Naismith's life (he invented basketball in 1891) is an irony. He coaches the University of Kansas basketball team
and he is remembered as the only losing coach in the university's history. This is quite a paradox because logic dictates
that if you invented basketball, ergo you are best at implementing and carrying out the masterplan for the success of the
team. Not true.

4. Alexander Graham Bell's life (he invented the telephone) is an irony. He invented the phone alright, but you can never
see a phone in his study room. According to some history that chronicles vignettes of his life he can easily be distracted
from work when the phone rings.

6. Edson Taylor's life (she survived completing a stunt going through Niagara Falls) is an irony. She successfully survived an
oak barrel stunt across the cascading water chaos in Niagara. She died later not because of a daredevil stunt ... she slipped
to her death because of an orange peel/rind.

7. Bill Hillmann's life (he is a bullfighting enthusiast) is an irony. He authored the book "How To Survive Bulls of Pamplona"
which tackles safety in the traditional bloodsport of bullfighting and bull-running. What do you know ... months later he was
gored by a bull.

8. Gary Kremen's life ( he is the founder of Match.com) is an irony. Being the founder, he lured all his friends to try this app
including his girlfriend. Lo and behold, several months later ... the girlfriend left him for another guy. The moral of the story
his GF met this guy on match.com

North Korea's nuclear capabilities are an irony. How can you say a country is being adored and revered ... was it because of
missiles and bombs? Consider these nuggets of information. Isn't it odd these laws and policies are being practiced and look
at these things are not allowed in North Korea?

1. Watching foreign movies or listening to foreign music can send North Korean citizens to jail.
2. North Korean citizens can not make international calls as it's considered a crime there
3. If anyone commits a crime in North Korea, not only he or she will be punished, but also their grandparents, parents, and children.
4. All men and women can only do one of 28 government-approved haircuts, 18 for women, 10 for men; other hairstyles are prohibited.
5. The Bible is considered a symbol of Western culture and is therefore prohibited
6. Students are required to pay their own desks and chairs.
7. You have to ask permission to live in the nation's capital
8. Prostitution is illegal.
9. Only a few people are allowed to have access in the internet
10. Freedom of movement is a problem.
11. Government imposes strict requirements on foreigners who marry North Koreans as an indirect way of discouraging North Korean citizens
from moving to other countries.
12. Dating is strictly controlled in North Korea, as romantic relationships may cause a breakdown of discipline in schools or workplaces.
13. It's illegal for North Koreans to leave their country without the government's permission.

A country professing to be HIGH and MIGHTY have really stoop down this LOW!

More odd things in North Korea

No iPhones or laptops
Strict customs rules
Prison camps in North Korea
Different calendar
Only one leader to vote in the election
No Marijuana law
Insult to Kim and his family considered blasphemy
Strict rules for tourists
Military service is compulsory
Power cut every night
Own set of basketball rules - a slam dunk is worth 3 points, not 2, 2-point shots in the last three minutes of the game
are worth 8 points. Also, if you miss 3 shots, a point is deducted.

And there's only one known obese in All North Korea and that's there Surpreme Leader. Then, the rest of the people could barely reach their ideal weight. They're skin and bone. However, their Nuclear Arsenals are advanced in comparison to the Western and Developed Countries.

On a brief glance, I was tempted to say the yin and yang of a balanced dualism which cannot be dismissed at ease. Rather, irony needs to be acknowledged with a balanced perspective as it teaches everyone real life's lessons. Almost akin to raw truth, irony stares into our eyes in undeterred fashion and cannot be denied.

There's a saying about the yin and the yang.

“Nothing is completely yin nor is it completely yang. All things in the material universe contain the seed of their
opposite force... Therefore, yin can become yang and yang can also become yin, though both yin and yang are
needed for the whole to be complete.”

One of the most easily recognizable symbols of balance in the world is the yin-yang symbol. The symbol was born
in ancient China to visually represent duality—light and dark, positive and negative.

If Yin and Yang are balanced there is harmony, but when Yin or Yang are out of balance they affect each other,
and too much of one can eventually weaken (consume) the other. There are four possible imbalances: Excess yin,
excess yang, yin deficiency, and yang deficiency.

Before I forget ... Angkol Nawat's MGI is also an irony. Amid the political crisis in Thailand, Nawat jumped to use
the slogan, "Stop wars and violence." The organization aimed to promote PEACE and he wants to offer the olive
branch to everybody.

However, Nawat and his ilk at times are going against its peace promotion lunacy ... as their names were dragged
into countless feuds ... some of them mindless altercations as they were brewed to fan to fire so Socmed will talk
about them.

Look at his latest ploys and trickeries as he can't resist commenting when he heard Miss Universe is up for sale for
20 million dollars. Angkol said: "VERY CHEAP".

It's probably the rights or franchise is $20 million to payout ENDEAVOR. But the whole MUO, they are priceless. Considering of their viewerships from different editions in the past are hundreds of millions even in youtube or tiktoks.

In pageantry, the perfect example of IRONY is Nawat Its-a-rag-in-hell and his circus pageant.
Its slogan is “Stop the War” yet Nawat promotes social war (i.e. social media”.
He wants independent stand-alone national contests for his pageant and yet he owns franchises of other pageants such as Miss World-Laos, Miss Intercontinental, Miss Eco etc,

WHAT AN IRONY and a JOKE =;)) :%)) :%)) :%))

Nawat is an irony ... one thing I can't stand with him is his constant braggadocio. He is just so full of himself
that he brags his pageant is the number 1 ... without batting an eyelash; or shame or remorse or guilt that he
made such pronouncements.

He is also feud-hungry, as he is known to have free-for-all verbal fisticuffs with Miss Earth, Miss Universe, Bb.
Pilipinas (although these three are not giving him his time of day) pageant forums like Missosology, pageant
fans etc.

His need to be seen, heard, and recognized as superior is so great, that he is crippled when it comes to accom-
modating anyone else. He is so busy taking, that giving is an impossibility.

This is overcompensation. The guy is suffering from deep issues of self-diminishment, self-lack, and self-rejection.
He doesn't even truly believe in himself, so it is as though as he is boasting to you, he is trying to convince himself.

This leads me to think that the top-notch production values of his pageant are just a front and a facade so he can
continue to brag. What else is left with MGI without that over-the-top production?

While I'm sure there are exceptions, I believe the main reason behind boastfulness is to hide insecurities. Many of
the biggest braggarts I know are hiding something they don't want others to see. For others, I think it's simple shallow-
ness and an incessant need for attention and admiration.

Its ironic that just when we have fully realized ourselves and completely wise, we leave this world.

We spend our whole life getting above everyone else, but when we die, we are just buried under the ground.
Life isn’t about pleasing everybody.
You cannot please everyone and that’s OK!

Beautiful example Virginia!

Where have you been? You are missing in action. By the way, isn't it ironic that you choose to become incommunicado
these past few days ... or weeks ... and when you come back ... you asked "Where are the people?

Anyway, what is important is that you are back!
