Jezebel harpies gush over the dude who got departed from Saudi Arabia for being too handsome. I can't even decide which part of this story is the most ironic.

I almost got deported for being too handsome then I showed the patch of psoriasis I have on my right knee and they let me go.

You know that "piracy is a crime" ad you have to sit through before watching DVDs? The background music was used outside of the terms agreed by the composer.

The turnpike exit on my way to work has three stations. One EZ Pass only and two cash only. Every morning, the ez pass is backed up 4-5 deep while the two cash stations see no action.

This is the same rule that applies to Siegfried or Roy (they all look the same to me) getting attacked by a tiger. If someone is going to get killed by an elephant, you'd completely expect it to be someone who spends a lot of time around elephants. It's as ironic as an electrician dying from getting electrocuted.

That's the clause Ryan was referring to. (Though it was Montecore.)

Which is more ironic…

A. A completely inexperienced person getting shocked (or trampled) to death

B. An expert getting shocked (or trampled) to death


I'd go with B every time. "A" is much more expected.

Why do either of them have to be ironic at all?
