Irony

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Until recently I was lead to believe the English were the self-proclaimed masters of irony, and the American's were dumbasses for failing to grasp it. Can someone explain to me why, then, THAT EVERY TIME I MAKE A FUCKING POST, SOME (English) MORON DISREGARDS THEIR GOD GIVEN TALENT IN THE UNDERSTANDING OF IRONY AND TAKES ME SERIOUSLY!?

You know who you are. Assclowns.

    maybe because we cant hear any intonation as your arent speaking, so it (sometimes) goes under our radar (and yes we invented that to :D)

    It's worse when they try and be ironic themselves, and defy underlying nationalistic genetics by just failing spectacularly.

    It's like standing in the supermarket watching a special child try and get something off the top shelf - you actually feel embarrased for them.

    With a little common sense it would become all too clear if I were serious or not. Just think to yourself, could someone that smart, witty, funny, charming, sexy (etc.) be that stupid/wrong/controversial?
    radar (and yes we invented that to :D)

    Uhh... no you didn't ;E

    are you sure it was irony? it gets confused with misfortune alot, or something sucky, or maybe just too retarded for people to grasp or care of this irony.

    The problem with irony and sarcasm is that they don't work that well on the internet. This is possibly because so many readers are utterly stupid.

    :yes:

    hence the need for these: :rolleyes: :D :eek: :lol::p

    because some among us only really feel at home communicating with pictures.

    and before you ask, that was a: :p

    For alot of people it does though. For instance, I've never seen you having a problem with the understanding of it on here.

    I dunno what's so hard about it o_O

    I wasn't talking about the British though, I was talking about the English. Seeing as how the guy who invented radar was Scottish, the pronoun 'we', which served to seperate you (the English) from us (the Scottish), didn't belong in the sentence.

    Edit: I didn't mean that to sound as pedantic as it did. The point was you didn't invent it, we did.

    For some reason, it reminds me of Frank in Donnie Darko. All hands and wapred backround and forks through the eye and - NO!

    Frank + Kiezo's av = rabbits that scare the bejayzus out of me.

    Go on then, fuck off and distance yourselves from us. I give you approximately 3 days before you're a country in turmoil (well, more than present, obviously), begging us for forgiveness and the like.

    Scottish Irony

    Its funny but no scots Iv met not even my own family seem to find it ironic when they go on about the oppersion of the english.

    What they fail to find ironic is that the scotts have inflicte much more oppersion round the world as part of the british empire and as imigrants who killed and enslaved natives in various countries, not to mention thats scotts imigrants basicaly founded the KKK,

    Ours are nothing alike :razz:

    I always get chaos_insomniac and Sa-ra-ra-ra's ones mixed up now though 'cause I usually work out who made a post by looking at the avatar outta the corner of my eye while I'm reading the post, and they look pretty similar colour/shape wise.

    True story.

    That sounds pretty ironic to me. but I was talking about the kind of irony more commonly known (to retards) as sarcasm :razz:

    I wasn't trying to turn this into a Scotland -vs- England thing, as seeing as I am not representive of Scotland your point is invalid as I wasn't saying all English people fail to grasp irony, just that the ones who have failed to grasp it are English.

    Seeing as some of the people that do understand it on here are English (Kermit, Mist, Kaffrin etc.), I don't know how anyone could have thought that.

    Maybe so, but they've never challenged me on a point when I was being ironic so I don't care :)

    Plus, Bri-namite (Scottish) was being ironic the other day. Round about fiiive English nubs flooded with replies of "OMG REALLY!?" and "Well that's all very well and good for you, but maybe not for other people!".
