Word of the Day

The Word of the Day is "ironic." Definitely one of my favorites.

ironic
relating to, containing, or constituting irony (a pretense of ignorance and of willingness to learn from another assumed in order to make the other's false conceptions conspicuous by adroit questioning)
synonym see SARCASTIC

I find it incredibly ironic that the U.S. flag flew at half-staff last week at the largest U.S. base in Afghanistan for those killed at Virginia Tech, but that the same honor is not given to fallen U.S. troops.

U.S. soldiers are sacrificing their lives and neither American military bases nor federal locations in the U.S. are flying the flag at half-staff. I guess they think it wouldn't make sense since the flag would unfortunately be at half-staff everyday?

Your turn, what do YOU find ironic?
