Now that's irony
People tend label as ironic things that are just coincidences. Like in that Alanis Morissette song Ironic, she lists 'rain on your wedding day', 'he won the lottery and died the next day', and just to keep it rhyming, 'a fly in your Chardonnay' as being ironic. But these things aren't ironic, they're just things that are bad that happened to some body.
There are many definitions of ironic but I feel certain this story exemplifies it perfectly.....
From the Huffingtonpost -- ONONDAGA, N.Y. -- Police say a motorcyclist participating in a protest ride against helmet laws in upstate New York died after he flipped over the bike's handlebars and hit his head on the pavement.
I don't think it gets any more ironic than that.
