Irrational Satire OBITUARY: Irony (500 BC - 2003) Is Dead BAR-ENDER
Posted by: on Jun 24, 03 | 9:14 am

Irony, the often used theatrical and literary device, died this weekend after a long illness.

Reaction to Irony's death was immediate.

“Serves him right,” said Scorn.

“He always got far more attention than I did. Plus he had a nicer house, a bigger car and smarter kids,” chimed Envy.

“This is tragedy unlike any other. I don't think the world has ever experienced a loss like the one it has just now. He meant so much to everyone,” mused Bathos.

The onetime favorite tool of coffeehouse wits, Irony had had to endure difficult times of late, most notably the candidacy of Michael Dukakis.

President Bush was also notified of the news while at Camp David over the weekend. “Who's I. Ronny?” the president said in an official statement issued through the White House.
