Did you think it was funny, stupid or ironic that i started 3 threads about how it seems like one or two people are starting polls on every possible subject?

What if my vote is "It's just something you did"
It's not really funny
It's not stupid
It's not Ironic, unless you went to the Allanis Morisette School of Irony
and if not funny, it cant be hilarious.

Well maybe it was a little funny

Actually, definition #2 fits perfectly without Alanis' definition. her song should have been called 'isn't it a bummer?' Although the guy who was afraid to fly...that was ironic.

I thought it was funny. Anyway...My wife and I developed another word, "ironical", for all things that while not actually ironic, would be considered ironic by Alanis. We use it all the time :lol:
