Situational Irony
  • ONLY IN AMERICA
  • do banks leave vault doors open and then chain
    the pens to the counters.
  • do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in
    the driveway and put our useless junk in the
    garage.

MORE SITUATIONAL IRONIES
  • DO YOU EVER WONDER...
  • WHY the time of day with the slowest traffic is
    called rush hour?
  • WHY they sterilize the needle for lethal
    injections?
  • WHY if flying is so safe, airports are called
    terminals?
  • WHY sheep dont shrink when it rains?

Review
  • Something that is ironic is unexpected.
  • If unexpected by a character, its dramatic.
  • If unexpected by everyone, its situational.
  • If its sarcasm, its verbal.
