As far as I know, Marcus doesn't have a thing against Alanis Morrisette -- only her song "Ironic," because simply put, all of the situations in her song are NOT ironic. There's no irony throughout the song. There's unfortunate situations, but that doesn't define irony. This has been bothersome to Marcus since the song came out, and any time we hear it....well, he's irritated.
One of the main problems with this song, is that is perpetuates the wrong definition of irony. I remember back in high school learning the definition for irony as "when something happens that you don't expect." But as time has passed (and I was an English Teaching major), I learned that there is sooo much more to irony than that. And, I guess Alanis got the same high school definition as I did and put it in a song? I don't know. And then, during those same high school years as mine, we could say, "Hey, yeah...see, we totally think this is an awesome song because yes Alanis, it is soo ironic. Duude. I hope I don't die after winning the lottery."
Marcus found this today and sent it to me. After all these years....
So, without further ado, listen to what is Actually Ironic.
