Cheap Irony




Today's lesson, kids, is in ironic foreshadowing. This is when a character says something that the reader knows is not true. Today's FoobStrip would just be sappy filler if we didn't know this relationship with a stable, single, hardworking guy was doomed.

For homework give three other examples from movies, literature, or bad comic strips.

Superior Photo-shopping skills my friend! Why you'd never even know that Lynn didn't draw that target herself!

Too bad you can't fix Liz's odd-shaped butt.

1. Studio 60 last week: "What could happen on my first day?" [followed by sounds of a roomful of cellphones ringing]

2. Mary Worth, 9/17: "I've a feeling he won't trouble you anymore."

3. Candide: "Everything happens for the best in the best of all possible worlds."

There ya go. One from each of three different media.

Excellent job, Claude. This could be one of those really highbrow memes if I refined it a little.
