What does Irony Taste Like?



Super-light, not too fruity, high acid and clean finish. What, you were expecting a more thought-provoking blog post; something about a black fly in your Chardonnay?


Anyone who knows me well understands that I could not resist buying a wine named Irony, as long as “oak” and “pear” didn’t appear on the label description. So yeah, I bought it and am posting about it because of marketing (ew, I am such a consumer), but it is really good.


OK, just for fun, you answer the question “what does Irony taste like?”


Here: essence of expectation with overtones of disappointment. How’s that? You try.

    Easy answer first:

    What does irony taste like?

    * Chicken.

    * Exactly the opposite of what you’d expect.

    * A complete surprise every time.

    * Nothing.

    Okay, I’ve got nothing… I shouldn’t respond to blogs in a groggy heap at 2 in the morning.

    Excellent effort Programmerman!

    "tastes like chicken" is still one of my favorite out of context punchlines ever.

    My guess is that it used to be quite potent, but has become watered down a lot in the last few years.

    Or maybe like raaaa-eeee-yyaaaayyynn on your wedding day?
