What's the Word Wednesday: Coincidence or Irony?

Yes, Scribe Fans, we have a winner! selected the recipient of Amy Tan's masterpiece, The Opposite of Fate, & I'm just tickled to announce that

wins the Grand Prize! What a shockeroo that a Bloggy Friend & Confident would be selected by this random integer generator & all, but there you have it! Marrdy, please send Mrs. Scribe your contact info ASAP, so you can start reading!

In honor of this coincidence (although some may call it irony, which it's clearly not), Your Humble Scribe brings you the Alanis Morissette video, "Ironic." And another mini-contest, just for today, OK?

Every example in this song is a coincidence. For a chance to win yet ANOTHER copy of The Opposite of Fate, can you tell Mrs. Scribe the only piece of irony in this song? First one with the correct answer wins!

Thanks so much to the SITS Girls for hosting yesterday's Spring Fling. Had a blast!

The English/Lit teacher will disqualify herself from this contest, but I want to make a comment at how glad I am that this song is no longer popular. I hated fighting with students about how this song is Ironically NOT Ironic. Sigh.

Bad enough I had to contend with my creative writing students about how she abuses the accented/unaccented syllabic breakdown of words to make them fit her lyric patterns when my kids had to write sonnets. "No, SHE's pronouncing words with the wrong inflection to MAKE THEM FIT; you can't do that." (flat-TERED; unforTUNate)

I love this song.

Congrats Mardy!

oh my gosh, this song has been the topic of conversation REPEATEDLY at lunch with the Language Arts people. I don't remember the actual irony though. =(

Susie said...

Congrats to the winner!

I do not profess to have a firm grip of the English language so, I am going to guess that "the good advice that you just didn't take" is the irony.

Susie said...

Wait...I want to change my guess. I guess "he waited his whole damned life to take that flight, when the plane crashed down". It's the only one that has a paralell element. Fear of flying/dying in a plane crash.

Final answer.
