* An episode of ''Series/KingOfQueens'' had Doug call something ironic and Arthur insist that that's not what irony is. [[BrickJoke At the end of the episode]], Arthur wakes Doug up in the middle of the night claiming he looked up ironic in the dictionary, and admits he was wrong: he thought "ironic" meant "made entirely of iron".

* In the season 2 finale of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', one character commented on the irony of the situation the cast had found themselves in, which unfortunately sparked a two-hour (off-screen) argument about whether the situation fit the definition of "ironic." The opening lines to the discussion produces several examples of things which aren't ironic, including this gem from Caboose:
--> "I think it would be ironic if we were all made of iron."

'''Donut''': No, ironic would be if instead of that guy kidnapping Lopez, Lopez kidnapped ''him''.\\
'''Sarge''': I
think it would be ironic if we were our guns didn't shoot bullets, but instead squirted a healing salve that cured all wounds.\\
'''Caboose''': I think it would be ironic if everyone was
made of iron."\\
''*two hours later*''\\
'''Church''': Okay, so we all agree that while the current situation is not totally ironic, the fact that we now have to work together is odd in an unexpected way that defies our normal circumstances. Is everybody happy with that?

* A running gag in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' regarding dwarves is that they are so straightforward, serious, and unimaginative that they think that irony means "something like iron." [[FridgeBrilliance It actually did once:]] look [[http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/irony here]] and scroll down to the second entry.

* Many comedians (in particular Irish comic Ed Byrne) observed that the AlanisMorissette song "Ironic" did not contain a single thing that was ironic, but that may be the point of the song. Herbert Lindenberger, professor of comparative literature and English at Stanford, went on {{NPR}} to explain that the Morisette song had perfect examples of situational irony and cosmic irony. So apparently, it's pretty (drumroll please) ''ironic'' when people claim that the examples in the song are not ironic. According to people who are a lot more educated than most of us.

* Comedian Sabrina Matthews on the song:
--> "Now that you have a billion dollars, perhaps you'd like to buy yourself a dictionairy, because irony is not a black fly in your chardonnay. Irony is a Scotsman cloning a sheep. Irony is renaming the national airport after [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan the president]] that fired all of the air traffic controllers."

** The right side of the picture, showing rain on someone's wedding day, is a reference to the Music/AlanisMorissette song that is the trope namer for IsntItIronic.

** However, the first instance of the Robot Devil's use of irony is actually a form of situational irony. You think the wheel is going to land on Bender's name, but it hits the Robot Devil's instead: Bender's statement "It's not ironic, it's just coincidental!" is not only incorrect as it is in fact ironic, but it is not coincidental.

However, Bender is still correct from his point of view, since the characters had no inclination on where it was going to land, and without narrative causality, it was just a coincidence.
