“…When all you need is a knife might not be ironic, but it is unfortunate. Add your own verse, stanza, or story of badly-timed annoyance to Alanis Morissette’s classic.” -The Daily Post
That’s the song my 7th grade English teacher used to play when he was teaching our class about irony! We had to memorize the whole thing and I remember I became OBSESSED with it. I think I still know all of the words to this day.
In fact, it was the first song I ever paid for haha. I probably paid way more than I should have since it was one of those Verizon MP3s you could download on the old fashion feature phones.
I remember my teacher asked us that very same question and my response back then was: “A nonbreakable ruler that breaks” because it happened to me in class that day. Wow, that sure wouldn’t sound very good in the song though…
I’ll stick to blogging.
