SAN FRANCISCO MAN BECOMES FIRST AMERICAN TO GRASP SIGNIFICANCE OF IRONY

Jay Fullmer, 38, yesterday became the first American to get to grips with
the concept of irony. "It was weird" Fullmer said. "I was in London and
like, talking to this guy and it was raining and he pulled a face and said,
"Great weather, eh?" and I thought "Wait a minute, no way is it great
weather". Fullmer then realised that the other man's 'mistake' was in fact
deliberate. Fullmer, who is 39 next month and married with two children,
aged 8 and 3, plans to use irony himself in future. "I'm like using it all
the time" he said. "Last weekend I was grilling steaks and I burned them to
sh!t and I said "Hey, great weather!".

Like, great joke!


Actually, it was pretty funny. Please, to all those not from the USA, don't hold California against us. We wish we didn't have to admit that it's one of ours....

But wait there's more!!!!!

We blame Tasmania for most of our faults over here too.......


How about this for ironic???

Bullet strikes, kills father teaching son about gun safety.
A 36-year-old Lakewood man was killed Wednesday while trying to teach his 13-year-old son about gun safety, police say. Investigators say the man was trying to show his son how to deal with intruders when the gun went off at their home in the 100 block of South Kendall Street around 3:45 p.m.

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
