    Is it me or is the alignment one really badly photoshopped? Look where the walls meet under the banner, it looks like a fucking Escher image!

          that`s not the irony. The irony is that the t-shirt says 'Han Shot First', which is something that Lucas changed to greedo in the re-edition. Lucas is wearing a tshirt that protests himself

      George Lucas altered the "Special Edition" of Star Wars by showing Harrison Ford's character (Han Solo) being shot at and only firing back in self-defense against an alien in the Cantina bar fight. The original version showed Han's character as being a bad space pirate who shot the alien in cold blood without being fired upon first. Tee-shirts came out with the "Han Shot First" logo to protest this change from the original version. It's ironic that George Lucas is wearing the shirt since he was the one who made the change in the special edition.

    most, if not all, of these are NOT IRONIC. It is however, quite ironic that OP thought they were ironic(misunderstanding is classic irony).

    The only thing ironic about this page is that none of these are ironic....
    –noun, plural -nies.
    1. the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning

    first of all words meanings and connotations evolve over time and what these pictures depict reflects modern societie's definition of the word "ironic". Secondly, a short lesson in etymology...the word ironic comes from an old greek word that means hypocritical, deceptive, or even disingenous ignorance which "most if not all of these" fit into. Finally, for the moron who stated these are "coincidence or unfortunate circumstances"... one definition of this term involves coincidental, contradictory, and unfortunate circumstances. Your arguments are all full of fallacy and ignorance on the meaning and history of the word ironic. so for all of you 14 year olds who love to post comments on pages arguing with the op by using define: on google please go to college and learn what you are talking about. It'd make the internet society slightly more endurable. Thanks much.

    There are three types of irony. None of these are literary irony, so that one is right out. Some of these, 1/2-2/3 are in fact situational ironic. Situational irony is the most common type of irony and its basic definition is as follow: irony based on a reversal of expectations. None of these are the third type of irony, socratic.

    The ones that aren't ironic are being confused with the idea of 'fitting.' An example: the dead end sign at a cemetery is fitting, not ironic. We expect dead things at a cemetery, so a dead end sign fits in perfectly. When we see a statue with a man shouting and an engraving of the word 'freedom' we expect it to be free, uncaged and yet that is not what we see. That picture is, in fact, an example of situational irony.

    Just remember what cracked said: if a porn star moves to Buttfucking, Iowa it is not ironic, it is fitting. If that same porn star moves to virgin Utah, that is ironic.

    Captain Irony AAAAWWWWWAAAAAAYYYYYY

    @ Sippy: While you make a valid point that the meaning of a word is ever-changing and should be based on its use by society, the "reversal of expectations" use is most definitely the one intended when the word is used in a book, newspaper article, magazine, etc. The use of ironic in other situations stems from a misunderstanding of this specific meaning.

    While we could just give up and decide ironic covers fitting coincidences and whatnot, I would argue that when something is really, truly ironic (dealing with opposites/reversals, like the fire protection building burning down), it's so much more sweet to have the perfect word to describe it: it's not only a funny coincidence, it's ironic!

    If anything, this discussion illustrates how languages aren't perfect, and that there's always room for more words; any ideas for things that are fitting but not ironic?
