Irony is on my list of favorite words for the week. According to Wikipedia it comes from the Greek word, eirōneía, meaning dissimulation, feigned ignorance.
Encyclopedia Britannica says it comes from a Greek comic character named Eiron, "a clever underdog who by his wit repeatedly triumphs over the boastful character Alazon."
Alanis Morissette says it's the black fly in your chardonnay.
Speaking of Alanis, did you know that she has a twin brother named Wade, who is an accomplished musician and yogi? An Epic Rap Battle between Alanis and Wade would be fun. Ironic even.
If you've never seen Epic Rap Battles of History, here's my favorite, Shakespeare Vs Dr. Seuss
Have a great weekend!
