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.

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.
