Example of Situational Irony Example of Verbal Irony Quiz Time Name the Type of Irony Used Answer: Dramatic Irony We’ve all seen those ridiculously over the top safety films where the bad actors pretend they aren’t paying attention to their band saw, then they get their hand sliced off while they scream, and stage blood pours all over the place like the fountains at the Bellagio. But every once in a while you’ll see the videos that employ the usage of real footage and pictures of real, horrible accidents. These are the videos that make you squirm in your seat as you try to hold back either your vomit or your giggles of nervousness.

According to Industrial Machinery News (a publication for what we assume is the world of Industrial Machinery), there was once a company that was a shining beacon of light in the dark and dangerous world of factory safety. This company was so safe that they had a five-year perfect safety record, and they were very proud of it.

One day, this company decided to impart upon their employees the importance of proper eye-goggle protection. To show them how truly terrible some eye accidents could be, they choose to run a video that showed nothing but absolutely gruesome and graphic images of terrible eye accidents.

Twenty-five people were injured as they ran out of the screening room, and 13 fainted – one of whom needed stitches when he fell out of his chair and cut hit head.
