A few years ago, Alanis Morissette sang a song titled "Ironic." Some of the lyrics were as follows:
An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic... don't you think
Yesterday, the fire station in my home town burned. Isn't it ironic?
