Because the world needs more laughs, I’m doing a short blog series on satire. If you’ve stumbled across my blog for the first time, do scroll back. Should you enjoy my eclectic posts, I invite you to subscribe. My interests are broad and varied and topics could be anything.
Here’s a short recap if you’re stopping here for the first time ~ The word satire owes its roots to the Latin for well-fed as in saturated and sated. Makes sense to me. Being well-fed feels good and so does having a good laugh. There are three main forms of irony found in Satire. So far, we’ve looked at Dramatic Irony and Verbal Irony. For today’s post I’m taking a look at the last of the three ~ Situational irony.
Also referred to as the irony of fate, irony of events, and the irony of circumstance, situational irony is comparing what is expected to happen with what actually happens. Nothing illustrates that better than Wile E. Coyote! Here’s a Friday smile to take into the weekend.
Come back tomorrow for weekend happenings. I’m busy!
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
