Why Ask MeFi is the New MeFi
These two posts, in conjunction, raise an interesting issue (if you’re me) that I’d like to call out here.
People always snark out Alanis Morissette for misusing the term “Ironic.” But it seems to me she clearly didn’t do so. Her usages of the term are all “poignantly contrary to what was expected or intended.” And it seems like all the protestations amount to, “That definition doesn’t count.”
