* One episode of ''{{Duckman}}'' has the title character buy a security system to keep his house safe. The night after it's installed, a pair of burglars drive by, see the sign for the security company, and realize that somebody lives there. They look up the system's technical specifications and successfully rob Duckman's house. Thus, the security system not only fails to protect Duckman's house, it actually leads to it getting robbed.

** A programming teacher gave his students their first assignment and told them not to worry about errors since everyone makes mistakes the first time. One student went to another teacher in tears because she couldn't find any errors in her completed assignment. She didn't realize she had written and executed a flawless program.

** A user had a girlfriend who was a big fan of ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleMermaid'' and downloaded a ''Little Mermaid'' screen saver for her. A month later, he discovered that the image from the screen saver was burned into the monitor glass, which is what screen savers are supposed to prevent.

* It is perhaps one of history's greatest ironies that TheIlluminati has become the most widely used label for the evil [[TheConspiracy Conspiracy]] archetype in fiction and among real [[ConspiracyTheorist Conspiracy Theorists]], in that the actual [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illuminati Bavarian Illuminati]] was a [[SarcasmMode devious, wicked]] group of... secular libertarians dedicated to subverting monarchism and religious fundamentalism and spreading democracy and Enlightenment-era ideals. You know, basically the opposite of what the Illuminati is perceived as today. This naturally made them widely reviled by monarchists and religious conservatives, the Catholic Church in particular, and led to them being banned in their native Bavaria. However, right-wing reactionaries continued to blame them for several events in European history thereafter, most notably the FrenchRevolution, thus turning them into villainous boogeymen and laying the groundwork for their current status in pop culture and conspiracy theories.

* In a Chapter in ''AmericaTheBook'' discusses a possible future in which the Conservatives' worst fears about immigration come true. In this possible future, whites become a marginalized minority, forced to work as itinerant day laborers. In their words, the greatest irony of the situation is that they don't realize the irony of the situation.
