An unfortunate event having a perverse outcome in the particular context.
Publishing an incorrect example of "ironic" on urban dictionary. For example" "rain on your wedding day" is not ironic. That is unfortunate. It would be ironic if you were a weatherman who predicted sunshine on your wedding day. But, that would be tough to sell as a lyric.

When a hipster has a guilty pleasure they want to publicly partake in, and is pretending not to genuinely enjoy it.
Steve proudly wore his pink Backstreet Boys T-shirt, knowing that his hipster friends would think he was wearing it ironically. He took it even further by posting three whole facebook albums of the concert he got it from.

Of all forceable entry tools, the "Irons" are probably the most favored by firefighters. Consisting of a flat-head ax "married" to a halligan bar, the uses of the Irons are many. They are most commonly used to gain access to locked doors and windows. The halligan bar has three different prying tips on it. They are a spike, a wedge, and a two-pronged fork or claw. By inserting one of these tips into a door or window frame and driving it with the flat-head ax, the trained firefighter can make quick access through most common types of doors. By driving the spike into the floor, the halligan bar becomes a good anchor point to attach a rope during emergency rescue procedures. The flat-head ax is also useful for cutting through windows and doors that may be boarded up. The Irons are carried with a special "marriage" strap, the blade of the ax inserted into the slot of the claw on one end, and the handle of the ax resting between the spike and the wedge on the other.
After Firefighter Steve got to the door and realized it was locked he exclaimed, "Dammit, I forgot the Irons, again."
