Is there some possible reason the Sluggy Freelance Dr. Ironologue example would have been removed? I don't remember for sure, but I thought it was there already, and anyway it's a totally obvious example. I added it now, anyway; I don't want an edit war, but I just don't see how it could have been wrong in anyone's mind.

Bender doesn't quote the definition of irony. That's not irony, that's just not being literal. For example, a metaphor uses words expressing something other than their literal intention, but metaphors aren't inherently ironic. Same applies with sarcasm, idioms, or phrasal verbs. Irony can be part of this too, but it's not the definition.

That's why he's the quote of Dude, Not Ironic which has the definition of "A character wrongly declares some situation to be ironic".

I am not sure why the "and another character corrects them. " bit is missing though.

I don't remember seeing the episode, but it could be close enough to the definition of "irony" to count for the joke. However, I don't, just by looking at that, know what the joke was exactly, and I don't really see what that's getting at as the page quote either, unless an idea that only kind of works.

How is Homestuck not on here?

Seriously, I'm reading through Dave's story in Act 2, and the word shows up in every other page.
