“It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay… isn’t it ironic, don’t you think”. I just had an English teacher rant to me that this isn’t even ironic. It’s scary when an English teacher rants. Chardonnay and Irony – those are things to rant about.
Do you think that finding a black object in a white wine is ironic and not simply a contrast in colours? I am no English teacher (PE degree from York actually) but I “really do think” that there are more ironic things than a black fly in your chardonnay.
Is it ironic because you wanted to send the wine back but couldn’t come up with a good reason – planned to use “waiter, what’s this fly doing in my wine” – when suddenly you look down and “Hey everyone, there really is a fly in my wine!” Maybe it’s ironic because you bought an expensive Chardonnay with the lottery money you just won and you’re about to choke on the fly and die (the next day).
What is ironic is that this album has sold 33 million copies worldwide and that I own one of them.
Also, I had a good Chardonnay the other day – Kaçaba unoaked Chardonnay (LCBO 101469 $14.95).
