The definition of “Irony”: a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.
Now that we have established that definition, let me tell you a story of a Norwegian Airlines flight headed to Germany that had to turn around because a broken toilet. The ironic part was it was carrying 85 plumbers were on the plane. (see I used “ironic” correctly…take THAT Alanis) The plumbers said they would have loved to handle the situation, but according the airline, the issue was on the outside. And I’m sure, while it would have been a thrilling experience, the airline had to make a u-turn back to Oslo, Norway to fix the problem.
The plumbing problem was eventually fixed (not by the flying plumbers) and they were on their way.
