It's like that hybrid I used to walk past that had an "Annoy a Liberal" bumper sticker.  I wouldn't say I was so much annoyed as bemused.

It's not ironic, but I was reminded of this.. It's been a while since I saw this, but there was a truck in front of me with the word SECEDE in giant letters (covering the entire back window) and a Texas flag.  But they had an Oklahoma license plate.  So, is the guy saying that he loves Texas so much that we should secede and be awesome by ourselves? Or does he hate Texas so much that he wants it to secede and leave the USA.

Maybe he just lives in the panhandle and has an average texan/okie's level of JOGRAFEE.  :whoops:

Community college students bitching about socialism. If we could harness irony as a power source we'd be energy independent just from the number of times I've overheard that this month. If we could use all the times someone incorrectly corrects someone on the definition of irony we could finally destroy the horrible, horrible sun.

Only if you're marrying the weatherman, and he picked the Chardonnay.




I think I told that wrong.

The verse about the guy who finally overcomes his irrational fear of flying only to die in a plane crash IS a great example of irony, though.

And "a no-smoking sign on your cigarette break" is pretty much the very definition of irony.

And all the parts that don't satisfy whatever definition of irony you happen to be fixated on at the moment are at the very least meta-ironic!

The last holdout Blockbuster shell near where I live finally finished conversion by the new land owner. Just how obsolete did digital media make movie rental?

It was replaced by a library.

Went to an adoption orientation tonight.

About an hour in, they got around to telling us they won't accept families with pit bulls.

Of all the organizations to prejudge my adopted family member based on her background...

Yep. Welcome to pit bull ownership. Everyone in the world either hates your dog or wants to breed your dog, and you generally don't want much to do with either group.

... and? If I wasn't living with and taking care of my sister and mother, despite being a single male I'd have already adopted or fostered kids. Kids are great and there are tons out there that need good homes.

Aside from that moral reason for adoption I also refuse to subject any child of mine to my family's shitty shitty genetic problems, from kidney failure to diabetes and heart disease we have basically a perfect storm of dying in your fifties going on in my family.

I think he was more implying he was unaware that Thad was planning on adopting a child than he was passing judgement there, Joxy.

Also kids are shit but otherwise I don't disagree with your stance regarding adoption.

Yeah, this. I'm all for adoption, but it's a major process, and revealing that you had plans and hopes for it and were shot down before you even had a chance in a benign thread like "Everyday Ironies" seems like you're really underselling how shitty that was.

I'm sorry to hear that happened, Thad.
