Posting too much, but I do NOT want to face the QA comments on a certain batch record on my desk.

Don't know why this amuses me so, but I suspect it's just life in school.

"Somebody once told me
The world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was lookin' kind of dumb
With her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an 'L' on her forehead."

Part of me feels vidictive. Someone (possibly 'popular') looking dumb while calling someone else (possibly not so 'popular') so.

The other part of me refects on the effects of insulting someone else.

I'm slightly confused. Do you feel vindictive towards the person described, or vindicated at the irony of someone "Popular" looking like a total fool by making a gesture that is meant to prove how superior they are?

But the second feeling... yeah, I remember my high-school days a little too well sometimes.

It is irony? Never did get a handle on that. But, yes, the person managing to look dumber than what they were accusing someone else of, pleases me.

To my understanding of Irony (Which might be as loose as your own), what you describe is indeed, Ironic.

And yeah, pretty much everything the Cool-Kids do to belittle the rest of us does make them look a little stupid. The "Loser Sign" is a great example of that.

ahhhh... I have that CD and was listening to it last night. it makes me happy. I was not a "popular" kid in school, but I never did stupid stuff and always saw "popular" kids doing stupid things. I think that is how they became popular, by doing stupid things and where remembered, maybe not for the stupid thing, but it made everyone else remember their names.....
