    I can't appreciate this without help from someone with an advanced degree in English. Or maybe from a former junior tax lawyer.

    As expected, Clack whiffs on the main point of the thread. Not ironic.

    This is merely a threadjack and not ironic, but that fine graphic presentation of irony included a link to a discussion about dogs that I found very funny. And more than a little true.

    Presently at Youth Conference. The post-dinner fireside was led by the 2nd C in the SP and focused heavily on (you’ll never guess) Satan, temptation, how evil the world is today, etc. It ended with a lengthy story about a YW whose life was wrecked by drugs, and it all started when she began drinking the wine for cooking from her parents’ pantry.

    The story ends with a warning and an admonishment to avoid evils. Prayer is said. The floor immediately is converted into a dance floor, and while the chairs are being moved to the side, the first song to play is “Red Wine” by Lady Gaga.

    Speaking of irony, I dehydrated myself yesterday hauling five gallon coolers full of water back and forth from the sink to the water station for the departure ceremony of our 2nd Battalion headed to the Middle East. It was a hot morning, and the crowd of 2000+ was thirsty. Due to staffing issues, I was the lone water boy and worked continuous for three hours. I guess I'm getting old, because I've never had issues with hydration in my life.

    Not irony.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Need an irony ruling. If one were to connect with a high school crush and she brought marijuana while you brought alcohol, would that be ironic?

    I'd say you have all your bases covered and it's time to start rounding the bases.
