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.

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 speaker or writer of verbal irony says one thing while INTENDING the reader to get a different meaning.
