I dont understand the irony...
was train made out of iron?
I guess common sense wasn't one of her enhanced senses...
a deaf person not hearing something?
i also didn't find this amusing.
That's not ironic, that's unfortunate.
i think that "ironic" is an often misused word.
often, the more appropriate word is, well... "appropriate" or "appropos."
(certainly not in this case, though!)
I am telling you! it was made out of Iron!
I think the word you are looking for is ferrous.
Yes...The Alanis Morisette song should've been called A Bummer.
"A black fly in your chardonnay...isn't it a bummer, don't ya think?..."
Saw it on the news yesterday. It's not ironic, nor is it amusing. Though I must say that if I was deaf I think I'd be pretty careful about walking close to train tracks.
I remeber that song... there was not a single thing ironic about anything she said...
"Irony is "a state of affairs that is the reverse of what was to be expected; a result opposite to and in mockery of the appropriate result." For instance: a diabetic, on his way to buy insulin, is killed by a runaway truck. He is the victim of an accident. If the truck was delivering sugar, he is the victim of an oddly poetic coincidence. But if the truck was delivering insulin, ah! Then he is the victim of an irony." George Carlin
Isn't that ironic?
It always amuses me when people bring up that song in an "irony" discussion and inevitably make an ass out of themselves because the song is "ironic". Ironic insofar as it is a song called "Ironic" that fails to mention a single ironic situation
Speaking of dumb songs... you guys remeber that song "you're so vein". So after all... wasnt that song about him?
Wasn't it by Carly Simon about someone, rumoured to be *mick Jagger* maybe...it was one of her famous boyfriends.
Very sad and tragic.
I thought You're So Vain was Carly's ode to Warren Beatty.
Sad news about the girl dying.
Hmm, I thought the song was about me.
Very sad and very tragic.
It's very odd that she wouldn't have felt the vibrations of the train coming.
