IRONIC
is unexpected. A character says one thing but means the
opposite.
Also called 'sarcasm' or being 'sarcastic'

Video clip from "Mean Girls:" Dramatic Irony When what happens is just the opposite of what is expected to happen.
Something about the situation is completely unexpected.
Examples:
General Sedwick's famous last words: "They couldn't hit an elephant from that distance!"
After Peter worked and saved for 6 months to buy a new IPod, someone gave him one for Christmas.

If unexpected by EVERYONE = SITUATIONAL

what is expected. When the reader knows more about the events in a story than a character does.
