A certain work of fiction was widely judged to be totally inaccurate. In light of this, it could have been considered wholly accurate and successful. What is this work of fiction?

Can it be read in two ways? Is it titled something like "This statement is false" or "You won't believe this?"

Is the genre or type of music relevant? If so, LTPF list.

Welcome to the board!

Galfisk:

************ SPOILER ************

It is indeed 'Ironic' by Alanis Morisette, oft lamented by English teachers for listing a series of sometimes-coincidental misfortunes than irony. Most of them would, by their defintion, concede that a song about Irony that contained no examples of it was, in itself, quite ironic.


Well done, Galfisk

In case any of you find this funny, one of my teachers way back in middle school said he knew of some people who called her "Alanis More-Upset" because of her almost yelling tone of voice.
