Irony is Fun!

There have been 4 Cries of Anguish:

Just what kind of irony are we dealing with here?

Is it A) dramatic irony in that the Devil is sitting smugly while we see a clever sinner about to undermine it all in the background?

Or is it B) the irony of pretending to know less than you actually do (the Devil actually knows about the sinner and his efforts, but is looking forward to being finally UNLEASHED upon the world--or, at least, the oceans).

Or is it C) the irony of serendipidy of the "what goes around comes around" variety in that the Devil had it coming, due, for instance, to the sixteenth century Witch Trials.

Or is it D) some other kind of irony, not yet catalogued by our researchers?

Please hand in all comment boxes to the TA at the end of the exam.

The easy answer is "D". This kind of unknown irony is a combination of schadenfreude and melodramatics.

I like the frolicking marine animals in the last pannel.

It's a fun comic strip.
