No, it’s a coincidence!

I know this is from last November, but it popped up in my Facebook feed today.  James Corden and Alanis Morissette updated the lyrics to the song “Ironic” and it’s great.  The best part is near the end with the line, “It’s singing ‘Ironic,’ but there are no ironies.”  It has always bothered me that there’s nothing actually ironic in the original song.  Rain on your wedding day?  That sucks, but that’s not irony.  Winning the lottery and then dying?  That sucks too, but still not ironic.  The only thing that comes close is the fact that the song is called ironic and has no irony.
