Surprisingly it's not nearly as bad as you'd imagine since there's nothing left that is recognizable as human.

Think of having to scrape your friend out of a jet plane engine. Disgusts me even thinking of it.

I wish I could understand song lyrics :( I can't make out what she is saying for half of them. That's a great video though.
(Watching Cats the musical really sucked for me, I had no clue what was going on the whole time)

It's pretty much just the song but with actually ironic situations.

The guy who was afraid of flying but died in a plane crash was actually an excellent example of irony. The rest of the song was just Morissette being dumb and not understanding the difference between irony and unfortunate coincidence.

The old guy in the OP is another good example - a contest winner dying as a result of winning a contest is textbook irony.
- I'm not Jesus, but I can turn water into Kool-Aid.
- A Sergeant in motion outranks an officer who doesn't know what the hell is going on.
- A demolitions specialist at a flat run outranks everybody.

Having ten thousand spoons and needing a knife wasn't a terrible example either. There are just too many definitions of irony, some of them incredibly broad...and it's fashionable for people to whip out the ultra-narrow ones so they can jack each other up saying "that isn't irony, it's ________" (or, on the internet, "that isn't irony, go kill yourself by drinking bleach").

I've always preferred "That isn't irony, it's hardly even bronzy".

True, if you're looking for the knife in a knife factory or a silverware drawer that's known to have knives in it :lol:
