Irony's a form of speech where the real meaning is hidden or contradicted by the words used.

It is IRONIC that the 1995 Alanis Morrisette song of the same name contains no irony. Or is that the point?
The web audience is so intelligent, they don't need an example sentence. I'm being ironic, of course.

1. A Loyola (Chicago) basketball fan finding fault with another team's questioning of officiating, favoritism, "the fix".
I find it ironic when Ramblermania fans complain about a Butler fan's complaining about the officiating.

1) Unusual, weird, worthy of notice. This is now the most common usage of the word. "We're both wearing the same shirt today, how ironic!"

2) Describes the act of doing something with self-conscious humor or for kitsch value. This is a recent meaning, and usually refers to an article of clothing worn by a hipster. ex: "Does he actually work at a carwash, or is he just wearing that shirt to be ironic?"

3) adj. (antiquated) The opposite of the expected or intended result. This once-popular meaning was originally the only correct usage of the word, but it has now fallen into disfavor. It is still used occasionally, but is considered outdated and pedantic. ex: "I find it ironic that a song about irony should contain so few examples of it."
(advice from a small-town Midwesterner to a New York writer) "Just remember that the difference between your people and my people is that my people bowl without (being ironic)." from Self-Made Man, Norah Vincent

nothing in this song is ironic, and that's the irony
alanis morrisette's song 'Ironic' has no irony, therefore it's not ironic.
