A non-existent and fictitious quality, although commonly referenced. The non-existence of irony can be confirmed from the fact that, although standard reference dictionaries name definitions such as "an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected, and/or the incongruity of this," any use of the term "irony" or "ironic" in keeping with such definitions invariably provokes whinging to the effect that the label "irony" is misapplied in this instance. Since the appropriateness of any usage of the word "irony" under any circumstances will inevitably be contested, it can be safely assumed that the word does not properly describe anything, and thus that "irony" does not truly exist.
"It's ironic how Oedipus' parents abandoning him in the mountains to try and prevent him from fulfilling his destiny to kill his father and marry his mother made him a stranger to them and made it possible for him to actually do so, isn't it?"

(Extremely nasal voice) "Ex-CUSE me, that's not what 'irony' ACTUALLY mea...whoa! Wh-what are you doing with those hedge clippers...! AAAAAGGHGHHH!!!!!!!!"

Something directly contradicting the expected outcome or situation.

Dying by a large crab from seafood poisoning when your zodiac symbol is Cancer.

Getting a Zodiac symbol of cancer and developing cancer.

Being born on December 25th, your parents naming you Jesus, and you end up growing up to be atheist.

Loving literature and being beat down by someone with a book.
Don't you just hate it when people think there clever but use wrong grammar...

Today, I saw that my ironing board cover was wrinkled.
I laughed at the irony.
Then I laughed again because irony has the word iron in it.

A difference between what you expect to happen, and what actually happens.
A catholic person saying "I'll believe it when I see it" shows such irony.
