Something that one might mistake for irony, but is actually not. Typically, a predictable worst-case scenario come to fruition. Named after Alanis Morrissette, who's song "Ironic" uses examples of "irony" that are not ironic -- e.g. rain on your wedding day.

Something that isn't ironic but you might think it is if you were a dozy Canadian bint. Named after Alanis Morisette's "Ironic".
"It's like rain on your wedding day" is alanic because it is only ironic if marrying a weatherman and he set the date. Otherwise it just sucks.
