36 Of The Most Ironic Moments Ever

Ironic incidents are lurking all around us, waiting to be captured on camera. We gathered these 35 images to show you some of most ironic situations that we can find in our everyday lives.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the term “irony” originates in early 16th century from the Greek word εἰρωνεία, meaning “simulated ignorance”. There are three major sections of irony usage: verbal, dramatic and situational. Verbal irony is when the opposite of what is meant is said. It is commonly encountered on a daily basis in familiar conversations. The dramatic irony is evident in such story-telling forms as plays, books and cinema, and requires that at least one character doesn’t know something that is clear to all of the other characters as well as the reader/viewer.

And, finally, there’s a situational irony – the sort that this post is all about. This type of usage for irony is relatively modern and usually means some kind of comical discrepancy, contrast or a literal opposition between the aims of an action and its actual result. If you find a burning car that was originally covered in flame-like stickers, or a book, called “Teeth Are Not For Biting” all chewed up ironic and funny enough, here’s a neat set of images for you.
