“Irony” is a concept that’s thrown around a lot these days. In our quest to determine what the noun “irony” or the adjective “ironic” now mean, welcome to a new Daily Caller featured called: “Is this ironic?”
“Is this ironic?” attempts to determine whether things are ironic or not ironic. For example, is any example of irony the song “Ironic” by Alanis Morrisette actually ironic? The answer here is, of course, no.
Help us figure this one out:
A man was arrested Wednesday for cooking meth. Sure, this happens all the time in middle America, but this guy was arrested while wearing a “Breaking Bad” T-shirt in (nope, not Florida) Illinois.
Daniel Kowalski, 21, was arrested in La Grange for possession and possession of materials needed to manufacture and produce methamphetamine, the Chicago Tribune Reports.
Kowalski — apparently a fan of “Breaking Bad” — was wearing a Los Pollos Hermanos shirt when he was arrested, which was the name of a fast food restaurant chain in the series that was used to cover up a meth cooking ring.
The irony of the situation was presumably lost on Kowalski, who may or may not have finished the fourth season of the series. In the penultimate episode of that season (spoiler, obviously), the owner of Los Pollos Hermanos — who was also a powerful meth dealer — is brutally murdered.
SO. You tell us.
