Mother comes into the TV room and discovers her 11-year-old watching South Park instead of doing his homework, as he was set to a dozen minutes ago. Pointing to the screen she says, "Don't let me tempt you from your duties, kiddo, but when you're finished with your serious studies there, maybe we could take some time out for recreation and do a little math."
More Verbal Irony…
This is when one of the characters is unaware of important information that the audience is made aware of.
For example: In the movie, Titanic, the audience knows that the ship is going to sink, no matter what! However, the characters (lovers Jack and Rose) have no ideas their ship will sink!

Dramatic Irony
There are 3 major types of irony. And they are…
How is this ironic?

Situational Irony: An event of outcome of events opposite to what was or might naturally have been expected.

For example:When John Hinckley attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan, all of his shots initially missed the President; however a bullet ricocheted off the bullet-proof windows of the Presidential limousine and struck Reagan in the chest. Thus, the windows made to protect the President from gunfire were partially responsible for his being shot.
The couple held the wedding indoors just in case it rained. A pipe burst and it rained indoors, anyway!
Situational Irony

The term “ironic” is often misused in everyday language. Read on and violate no longer!
“Isn’t it ironic…don’t ya think?”
And this?

The speaker or writer of verbal irony says one thing while INTENDING the reader to get a different meaning.
For example, when using Sarcasm, the speaker says one thing but his tone implies another meaning.
Examples: “Oh, Great!” or “HaHa, lucky you!”
Verbal Irony
Is Revenge ever Justified?
What makes a setting sinister?
There were no attendants at home.
I had given them specific orders not to stir from the house
