    Best Irony Every?!?

    Lifelock CEO gets identity stolen...

    Yep, it's the guy in the commercial with his Social Security number plastered on the screen saying how confident he is that his identity won't get stolen.


    Edit: Mispelled Title...

    Eh it's moderatly funny. The frauds had nothing to do with his service because the one instance where someone did manage to borrow money in his name it was only because the credit card company did'nt look up the social security number and even in this case he did not have to pay the money because it was an error on their part.

    I like the story of America's Most Wanted phone lines going down the night they did a story on a phone hacker.

    but neither case is irony.

    I have been waiting for this, it was such a obvious hacker challenge.

    Still think the best irony ever is Sony BMG getting caught with pirated software on their drives.

    What about when that lobbyist against seatbelt laws was killed in a car accident because he did'nt wear his seatbelt?

    I think it would be more ironic if he died because of wearing it.

    No... that would be the opposite of ironic.

    It would be more ironic if the guy who first proposed seatbelt laws died in a car accident because of his seatbelt.

    Hmm, isn't irony somehow its own opposite as well ?

    But I admit that my example has a cynical element as well.

    Re: Best Irony Every?!?

    Hmm how to describe irony?

    Here's an example

    Infact It's near unresistable irony.

    It would have been priceless if WildBerry had written that.

    Yeah it would. I sometimes bait him with obvious one's like that but he never seems to fall for them. Mostly I just end upp catching Tjej instead and if any fish is a releaser then he is.

    Maybe she was being ironic.

    Heh, that article actually reproduced a skit by Ed Byrne.

    I think the real problem was the song didn't allow her to get in depth. Take "Rain on your wedding day" line. She probably meant the couple picked a day that was 100% guaranteed to be sunny and it was outdoors with no backup spot in case of rain. And then it goes and rains. But that wouldn't fit.

    "Best Irony Ever"? Probably the fact that all I have to eat right now is chocolate pudding.
