Irony

I think I'm starting to get the hang of this irony lark. I wasn't entirely sure when the nice German lady came up to me while I was watching my son play a shoot-em-up video game and said, "Nice game for your son to play." After all, it was a nice game for my son to play.

But the posters all over the Tube for "Guys and Dolls" starring Don Johnson? That's got to be irony.

Germans are far worse off than Americans. You just don't get irony. Germans don't get humour.

You know you're old when you've reached the point that you can't master all of the games your child plays. Now I know how my own mother felt when she could no longer keep up with my reading.
