Could someone who understands irony go through the real life section? It seems like they put every death that is intresting or notable there and not just ironic.

Just wondering whether the Storm Hawks episode "Velocity" has a subversion in it. Dark Ace conjures up a tornado (the storm) that sucks in Aerrow, Radarr, and his pimped up skimmer. Aerrow eventually gets out by not trying to fight the storm, but uses its power to throw him out of its range. Lampshaded later by Aerrow to Dark Ace: "You'll need to think of something better than a storm to get rid of a Storm Hawk!"

No... someone not dying from something that shouldn't kill them isn't really an example, you know?

True... Which trope should this example be in? "Can't kill with Irony" or something?

Removing link in Real Life Malocom X example, as rerring to the moment where he decided that perhaps not every white man was the devil by calling it a face heel turn? Might offend one or two people. Just maybe.

The current trope image, though accurate, is a little depressing... would anyone object if we replaced it?

if by 'current image' you mean the picture of the dead beaver under a tree DONT EVER REPLACE THIS IMAGE i laugh so hard every time i see it

also i imagine that there will be few images of death that wouldn't depress you.

Can someone explain the Macross Frontier example? Both because it sounds interesting, and because as it is it's one of those things that only makes sense if you're already familiar with it.
