* 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 Creator/{{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.

* An episode of the short lived series "The George Wendt Show" contains an example. When someone said something sarcastic, George responded as if he took him seriously. Someone else then said condescendingly, "He was being ironic," to which George replied, "Actually, he was being sarcastic. But it's ironic that you didn't know that."

--> "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."

* In the season 2 finale of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', one character commented on the irony of the two rival teams [[EnemyMine being forced to work together]], which prompted an argument over whether the scenario fit the definition of "ironic."
-->'''Simmons''': No, ironic would be if we had to work together to ''hurt'' each other.\\

* 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:
-->'''Simmons''': No, ironic would be if we had to work together to hurt each other.\\

'''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?

* In ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'', what makes Kirito and Asuna start to really appreciate Yui is when she corrects Yullier that the "peace conference" in a dungeon that turned out to be a trap her husband fell into isn't ironic, but closer to "completely expected."
-->'''Yulier:''' Wha... what are you talking about?\\
'''Yui:''' [[LiteralMinded Irony, noun: "A state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects, and is often amusing as a result."]] Example: Your leader is named Thinker, [[BrutalHonesty yet he appears to be something of a dullard.]]\\
'''Yulier:''' (''gasps'')\\
'''Kirito:''' Holy ''cow'', Yui! That was amazing! I wish I had like [[MicDrop a tiny mic for you to drop!]]\\
'''Asuna:''' ''[[{{Squee}} Oh my god, that would be adorable!]]''

* In ''FriskyDingo'', when former billionaire Xander Crews winds up homeless, the documentarian says it's ironic how he's now living in cardboard boxes produced by the company he used to own. Xander says that's not what irony means, while the documentarian replies that that's ''exactly'' what irony means.
