Am I missing something, or isn't all comedy based on irony? The little twist that goes against logic and makes you go Ha. Isn't it irony every time? If you're anti-irony, don't you have to be anti-comedy? How can you like comedy, humor, funniness, if you don't like irony? Am I misunderstanding what irony is? Am I missing something?
Hey, I don't like every single story that appears in McSweeney's, but this righteous crusade against them is just dumb.
