What has happened here? Have I posted too much non-ironic content? Has Google tweaked their search algorithm to be irony-neutral? Is the word "irony" massively and inappropriately overused, thus diluting my content?
It's probably that last thing. I blame Alanis Morissette for releasing a song about irony*** that contains absolutely nothing ironic in it. Hey Alanis! If you read this blog, and I know you do, you ruined irony for everyone. I was at a meeting last week and someone actually said "For lunch today I went to Subway to get a sub, and ironically I got a Panini instead." That's not ironic, that's just a very specific sandwich option at a sandwich shop.
On a related note to hipsters: Getting an iced tea at Starbucks while wearing a bolo, driver's cap, scarf and Atari tee shirt with rainbow legwarmers under Capri skinny jeans and slippers is not ironic. It's certainly a fashion risk, but not ironic. You can call it ironic if you like, but you are still wearing all that crap at a Starbucks in public, and people can see you. We can. And you look stupid.
