BLUE: You think one thing will happen, and a different thing happens.
RED: The situation makes you think one thing will happen, but something else happens instead.
GREEN: The situation leads you to expect a certain outcome, but the opposite of what was expected occurs. It was sunny every day this week. You think it will stay sunny. You wash your car. A bird poops on it the next day. EXAMPLE 1 This is ironic because you thought it would stay clean in the sun. EXAMPLE 2 It has been raining and cold for weeks, and you are sick of being wet. You go to the store to buy a new jacket. This is ironic because you didn't think you'd get wet after buying the jacket. You are walking down the street, staying dry, when a bus drives past and splashes you. EXAMPLE 3 You are attempting to learn to change oil in your car to save yourself money. As soon as you've got it down the global supply of gasoline runs out, rendering both your car and your new skills useless. This is ironic because you thought your skills would be useful, but something out of your control made them useless. WHICH IS IRONIC?
