Isn't it...Ironic?

Is it ironic to write a song about irony, that is in fact, incorrect about the meaning of irony?

Situational Irony

That is a type of irony called situational irony, where something happens that one would not expect from the context. It is generally not considered irony in the broader sense, though.

Irony?

Is Pewdiepie's situation ironic? Because he said the n word during his live stream after he posted a video about live stream fails.

No

That is not irony. That would be called a quiescence. (Kwensidens)

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 10/06/2017 - 00:33
Fix the wrong

that, good sir, is wrong. the definition for quiescence is (thanks google) : "To be quiescent, pronounced "qwhy-ESS-ent," is to be quiet, resting, which is exactly what its Latin origin quiescens means: In our busy world, it is hard to find a place to be quiescent. It has a second meaning: "causing no symptoms."

Three types of irony

Verbal irony: basically, the same as sarcasm, although sarcasm is generally always used to be hurtful, whereas verbal irony can be something as simple as, "Great! I just washed my car, and now a bird pooped on it."

Dramatic irony: Used most often in movies, tv, and literature, dramatic irony occurs when the audience (or reader) is aware of something that the character is not. For example, watching Rick Grimes about to open a door, knowing that poor Rick is unaware of the zombies swarming just on the other side. OR, knowing that the characters entering into a love scene are actually brother and sister (yikes!), but they don't know it.

Situational Irony: Like dramatic irony, but in this case both the character AND the audience (or reader) are surprised, because we are led to believe that a situation wasn't likely to happen, yet it did. Getting caught in a rainstorm in a new suit isn't ironic, since there was no way to know if it was going to rain or not. That's just bad luck. But a weatherman getting caught in a rainstorm is ironic, because he's supposed to know the forecast ahead of time and be prepared.

Is this irony?

If a person has a film-like memory, and they rely on it to react to situations, it also makes them smarter because they can just go through their memories. BUT it's also made him unable to understand why imagination can make people so full of emotions, and why they think of non-existent things, and think in different ways than normal people.

Would this be ironic, as in he's so smart because of his film-like memory but it also hinders his ability to understand? Or would this be metaphor, juxtaposition or other literary device?

Recalling a memory &

Recalling a memory & connective feeling for a situation and understanding the situation itself is two different things. At least that what i could understand ...

That is not at all an epithet. An epithet would be the phrase "the Great" in the name "Alexander the Great" or "the Grey" in the name "Gandalf the Grey".

As for the original question, that sentence is not really an example of irony.

Is this irony?

TV show begins with a guy having a quickie with a random woman. It's portrayed as rather impersonal and the guy isn't fully enjoying the experience.

At the end of the show the same guy has met another woman who invites an afternoon tryst but he turns her down because it's heavily implied he has true feelings for her even though he wants to.

Is this irony? If it's something else, what is it?

I've never heard of the usage of "burning something up". I'm assuming that it follows a similar trend as "light it up", "beat it up", and such where "up" is just added for the sake of adding it. What you put sounds more like a play with words. It doesn't play with or change the meaning of sentence.

It would be ironic if the author was describing a fire as a house fire, making the reader think it was a fire that consumed your average house... when instead the fire had consumed an entire mansion estate (by no means a regular house fire).

Another irony would be if the reader learned of a fire on a certain street that had a hay seller, old-style Japanese door vendor, or Wally's warehouse of flammable goods (I don't know), making one expect that it would be the source of the fire... only to find that it was actually the firehouse across the street that was on fire.
