Michael Vick, and the wide world of sports.




Yep. That's not Michael Vick. To the best of my knowledge, the gentleman was never involved in dog fighting. Nor is he recognized for his contribution to sports. He's Jonathan Swift. He's famous for his ripping good yarn: "Gulliver's Travels".

Maybe less known, he wrote "A Modest Proposal".

This article employed "Socratic Irony" to make a point.

In his book "Gold", Asimov says
And yet, you know, not everyone has a 'sense of irony', which is by no means the same as a 'sense of humor'. I firmly believe that one can have one, but not the other.

Indeed. So this category will post the unfortunate attempts at irony.
