15 Of The Funniest Displays Of Irony Ever



Irony is defined as “an outcome of events contrary to what was or might have been expected.” In layman’s terms, it is when something ends in a way completely opposite of what was expected while still relating. Most of us, however, seem to think that the words “irony” or “Ironic” mean that sometimes life really sucks. While the results of irony can almost always be negative or disheartening, we optimists can usually find humor in it. That is exactly what we have compiled here. A list of some of the most hilarious displays of irony, thankfully caught on camera.
