Sometimes, situational irony is so perfect, so sublime and pure, that it is almost too good to be true. You cannot help but wonder to yourself, "Is this real? Can it really be true? Or is this someone's idea of a crude joke, a clever attempt at getting a laugh?" We here at HPO are usually of the opinion that if something is so ridiculously out-of-line that it seems like there is no way it could be true, it usually is true. It's just the way life works.
