Seeing Irony

Irony is all over the place! Loosely defined, it's the opposite of what is expected or intended.

Unintended consequences—a miracle drug meant to cure one illness causes another.
Deviation from a pattern—after a long dry spell it rains—the very day you plan a picnic.
Deceptive appearances—the dumb blond gets the top grade in calculus.
